  • Description

    Highly acclaimed at this year’s Sundance and Sheffield Documentary festivals, the new film from award-winning documentarian John Akomfrah (The Nine Muses) is a sensitive, emotionally charged portrait of cultural theorist Stuart Hall.

    A founding figure of contemporary cultural studies – and one of the most inspiring voices of the post-war Left – Stuart Hall’s resounding and ongoing influence on British intellectual life commenced soon after he emigrated from Jamaica in 1951. 

    Combining extensive archival imagery – television excerpts, home movies, family photos – with specially filmed material and a personally mixed Miles Davis soundtrack, Akomfrah’s filmmaking approach matches the agility of Hall’s intellect, its intimate play with memory, identity and scholarly impulse traversing the changing historical landscape of the second half of the 20th century.

    Contents:

    Special Features TBC

    Booklet with original essays

    Cast and Crew:

    Directed by John Akomfrah (Nine Muses, Handsworth Songs).

    Music by Miles Davis.

    Awards and Reviews:

    Official Selection at Sundance Film Festival 2013

    “A stirring documentary tribute to the cultural theorist Stuart Hall … we see the past few decades through very special eyes” Time Out, Dave Calhoun ****

    “Akomfrah finds a new and quietly moving significance in Hall's own life story” The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw ****

    “[Hall’s] analysis of the second half of the 20th century (accompanied by the moody music of Miles Davis) provides plenty to chew on” Evening Standard, Charlotte O’Sullivan ****

    “A fascinating visual tapestry of archive material” Total Film, Tom Dawson ****
