The Stuart Hall Project (99 mins)
Stuart Hall emigrated from Jamaica 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. Comprised of archive footage and set to the music of Miles Davis, this documentary by the director of The Nine Muses matches the agility of its subject, playing on memory, identity and the changing landscape of the late 20th century.
