The Stuart Hall Project (film screening)

Mon 20 May 2019, 6.30pm

Dir John Akomfrah, 2013

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 Projectfollows the upheavals, struggles and turning points that made the 20th century the century of campaigning, and of worldwide political and cultural change.
