The article discusses three documentary films – Strong Island (2017) by Yance Ford, For Akheem (2017) by Jeremy S. Levine and Landon Van Soest, and I Am Not Your Negro (2016) by Raoul Peck – which similarly address violence as the worst consequence of racism and at the same time explanatorily refer to personal experience, archival footage, historical continuity and the current political situation in the US. The article thus examines what means of expression the films use for such depiction.
