The Stuart Hall Project

The Stuart Hall Project


In 1951 the late Stuart Hall left his native Jamaica to study at Oxford University. He  would go on to become one of the United Kingdom’s foremost cultural theorists and intellectuals, and hailed as the father of modern British multiculturalism. This powerful documentary portrait of Hall—made up entirely of footage from his personal archive—takes the viewer on a roller coaster ride through the upheavals, struggles and turning points that made the 20th century the century of campaigning, and of global political and cultural change. The film is completed by a potent score comprising the music of Miles Davis, for which Hall had a lifelong affinity.

Note: The Stuart Hall Project will be preceded by a screening of the short film Yolanda.
