It would be unfair to call The Stuart Hall Project a simple documentary. The film, directed by John Akomfrah, is a visual and sonic excursion into the life and philosophies of the Jamaican-born intellectual, a finely crafted collage of memory, distilling hundreds of hours of archival footage of Hall, and exploring not only his life story but the story of the 20th century, in many ways intertwined with his own. In the the 1960s, Hall came to prominence as an important thinker in the UK, fearlessly sharing his ideas on race, class, and the social structure as it related to the black people of Britain and around the world. Hall was interested in breaking down the structures of society, power, and political institutions in relation to how they impacted and indeed were tied to the plight of the black man.
