Stuart Hall Project
UK, 2013, 99 min
DIRECTED BY John Akomfrah
Acclaimed at the Sundance Film Festival, John Akomfrah’s new film is an emotionally charged portrait of cultural theorist Stuart Hall. A complex and deeply insightful thinker about subjects as diverse as feminism, Marxist methodology, migration and American hippies, the 82-year-old, Jamaican-born Hall is one of the most inspiring voices of the post-war Left. Combining archival imagery with specially filmed material and a Miles Davis soundtrack, Akomfrah carefully constructs sequences of rare forgotten and long since seen historical material together with Hall’s extensive broadcasts and personal archives, taking the audience on a kaleidoscopic journey through the ideas and personal story of Stuart Hall.
Discussion to follow.
