The Stuart Hall Project

Premiere: Sundance January 2013 95 minutes, Feature Documentary

Director: John Akomfrah

Producers: Lina Gopaul and David Lawson

‘The Stuart Hall Project’ is the intimate and engaging portrait of Stuart Hall, the Jamaican born pubic intellectual and co-founder of the New Left Review, whose work in cultural studies profoundly influenced the political landscape and academic landscape. A life lived through the twentieth century’s defining political moments.

Weaving between the musical archeology of Miles Davis and the political narratives of the twentieth century, director John Akomfrah, carefully constructs archival sequences of rare, forgotten and long since seen historical material.

A ground breaking film that pioneers a new archival and sonic approach to forgotten histories, forgotten ideas and the untold stories of the politics of change.
