Between 1982 and 1998, the Black Audio Film Collective—a pioneering group of seven British artists and thinkers—produced an extraordinary body of poetic, allusive, and intensely personal films, videos, and “slide-tape texts” that chronicled England’s multicultural past and present and pushed the boundaries of the documentary form. BAMcinématek celebrates BAFC co-founder John Akomfrah’s acclaimed new film The Stuart Hall Project, which premiered at Sundance in 2013, with a four-day retrospective of the vital and visionary group.
