Dark continent, Written and Directed by Dani Gal, 25min, 2023 Dark Continent deals with the racial phobias resulting from the colonial imaginary and their transmission through music. His film is an adaptation of a case study from Martinican psychiatrist and anti-colonial writer Frantz Fanonʼs book Black Skin, White Masks (1952): a young White French woman suffers from a nervous disorder triggered by the sound of African drums—prohibited by colonial regimes and slave owners because they were suspected of carrying signals of rebellion.
