The Stuart Hall Project + post film discussion
Join us at the cinema for a screening of The Stuart Hall Project followed by a discussion will be led by Cecil Gutzmore, which will explore how Hall’s work has had a significant impact on our world view and the UK’s political landscape.
John Akromfrah’s absorbing and emotionally charged documentary tribute looks back on the life and work of Stuart Hall, one of the UK’s leading cultural theorists.
Weaving between the musical archeology of Halls’ favourite musician, Miles Davis and the twentieth century’s defining political moments, Akomfrah, creates an intimate and engaging portrait of Stuart Hall.
Cecil Gutzmore is Afrikan-Jamaican and first settled in the UK in 1961. A retired lecturer in Caribbean studies, history and political science at the London Metropolitan University and the University of the West Indies, Cecil remains engaged in research, writing and activism on a range of race, class and gender issues. His published work appears as book chapters, articles (The Black Liberator, Marxism Today, Race and Class, Jamaica Journal, Interventions) and journalism (the Jamaica Gleaner). He has also worked on a number of films about Afrikan-Caribbean politics and culture-history.
