Stuart Hall

British/Ghanaian filmmaker John Akomfrah's Stuart Hall feature documentary made its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, under the title The Stuart Hall Project, and will next screen at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, its Caribbean premiere.

Hall is a Jamaican cultural theorist and sociologist who has lived and worked in the UK since 1951. He was President of the British Sociological Association from 1995-1997. His reume is certainly much more broader than that, and Akomfrah's documentary will fill in the blanks.

Here's how its described:

Antinuclear campaigner, New Left activist and founding father of Cultural Studies, this documentary interweaves 70 years of Stuart Hall’s film, radio and television appearances, and material from his private archive to document a memorable life and construct a portrait of Britain’s foremost radical intellectual.

And it should be fitting that the task has been undertaken by an influential black British artist, lecturer, writer, filmmaker and intellectual, who one could also described as radical in his own right - as well as a founder of the Black Audio Film Collective, with a 20-year-old body of work that is among the most distinctive in the contemporary British art world.

Zeba Blay saw the film at Sundance and reviewed it HERE.

The Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival takes place from September 17th - October 1st.

A trailer for the film has surfaced courtesy of the festival and is embedded below:
