Our take

Throughout his career as a broadcaster and academic, Stuart Hall dissected notions of British identity like no one else. In this remarkable documentary, John Akomfrah couples archive footage with the music of Miles Davis for a riveting examination of history, selfhood, and the immigrant experience.
