Director John Akomfrah, 2013, 103 mins, Cert 12A.
Stuart Hall emigrated from Jamaica to the UK in 1951 to take up a place at Oxford University, and became a founding figure of cultural studies with a resounding and ongoing influence on British intellectual life and the new Left. Comprised of archive footage and set to the music of Miles Davis, this documentary by director Akomfrah matches the agility of its subject, playing on memory, identity and the changing landscape of the late 20th century. The Stuart Hall Project follows the upheavals, struggles and turning points that made the 20th century the century of campaigning, and of global political and cultural change.
