The Stuart Hall Project

The Stuart Hall Project

As we approach the one-year anniversary of the death of Cultural Studies founder Stuart Hall, please help us celebrate his life and legacy with the Pittsburgh premiere of the award winning biographical film, The Stuart Hall Project.

“If one of the roles of documentary film is to educate and stimulate, than director John Akomfrah has done an admirable job with The Stuart Hall Project. Although little known in this country, Hall has been an intellectual rock star in Britain since the ’50s for his work on cultural identity. Blending archival footage, home movies, Hall’s television appearances, and the music of Miles Davis, Akomfrah has created a film bursting with ideas that is also enormously entertaining, in no small measure due to the fact that Hall himself is such an engaging personality” (From the Sundance Review in The Hollywood Reporter)
