Stuart Hall Film Project Screening - FREE  (Movie / Film)

Join us at the Broad MSU for a screening of The Stuart Hall Project, a stirring film that charts the life and work of the influential cultural theorist Stuart Hall (1932-2014). By interweaving archival footage, specially filmed material, interviews and a soundtrack by Miles Davis, The Stuart Hall Project reveals how Hall's personal trajectory as a Jamaican immigrant living in the United Kingdom, coincided with the demise of the British Empire and the birth of a multicultural Britain. Far from being merely a portrait of a post-war immigrant whose radical ideas inspired artists, writers and political thinkers alike, this film is a poignant meditation on the struggles of race, class, gender and cultural identity that marked the latter part of the 20th century. The screening is followed by an open discussion focusing on Hall's legacy on both sides of the Atlantic. Presented as part of the Black Film as Social Activism series, organized by the Broad MSU and the MSU Film Studies Department.
