The Stuart Hall Project

IN 1951 STUART HALL left his native Jamaica to study at Oxford University. He would later become one of the United Kingdom’s foremost cultural theorists and intellectuals of the Left. This powerful documentary portrait of Hall, spanning over 50 years, is comprised entirely of footage from his archives. The film is completed by a potent soundtrack comprising music fragments from Hall’s lifelong love of Miles Davis.
