Stuart Hall is one of the most influential and esteemed cultural theorists of a generation. A thinker and commentator, his peers include other giants of political commentary such as Noam Chomsky, Susan Sontag, Alan Ginsberg, Michel Foucault and Gore Vidal. John Akomfrah’s sweeping and majestic film The Stuart Hall Project takes the viewer on a rollercoaster ride through the upheavals, struggles and turning points that made the 20th century the century of campaigning, and of global political and cultural change.
Highly acclaimed at this year’s Sundance and Sheffield Documentary festivals, this new film from award-winning documentarian John Akomfrah (The Nine Muses) is a sensitive, emotionally charged portrait of cultural theorist Stuart Hall. (Courtesy of BFI Distribution)
