    Abstract

    Taking the form of a series of reflections emerging from a conversation between the author and critic Gayatri Spivak, this article turns the exploration of the question concerning violence to the significance of Frantz Fanon as healer, image, exemplar and, following the term coined by cinema philosopher and filmmaker Jean Epstein, photo-electric psychoanalyst. It advances on the exploration of the significance of the cinematographer and the camera as a tool for acceleration that by focusing on discontinuity allows a singular attention to voices that utter and images or gazes that confront us with contradiction thereby permitting to verify the universality of forms of justice and subjectivities in search for justice and liberation.
