FREE

Revolution, politics, culture and the New Left experience – this absorbing highly-acclaimed documentary presents an intimate portrait of Stuart Hall, one of the most influential and esteemed cultural theorists of our time. Jamaican-born, Stuart Hall emigrated to the UK in 1951 to take up a place at Oxford University, and became a founding figure of cultural studies with a resounding and ongoing influence on British intellectual life.
Comprising archive footage of Hall’s appearances on radio and television set against a soundtrack by Miles Davies, Hall’s favourite musician, the film explores memory, race and identity tracing events from Hall’s life and the wider social and political upheavals of the late 20th century. Q&A with Historian and Activist Tony Warner, founder of Black History Walks.

103 mins, John Akomfrah, 2013, Cert 12.

Stuart Hall spoke at our 1989 AGM. Read his speech here.
