HALL

directed by Rommell Hall

FEATURED SCREENING

What follows are tales of daring escapes and police chases as Hall seemed to be always one step ahead of the long arm of the law. Twice he was recaptured and twice he defied the odds by escaping maximum-security prison and fleeing to neighbouring Caribbean islands. Hall would become somewhat of a folk hero in Barbados where locals would speculate as to his whereabouts and spin incredible tales about how he was able to escape custody as often as he did while others could not.

SHORT FILM

“If you think of culture always as a return to roots — R-O-O-T-S — you’re missing the point. I think of culture as routes — R-O-U-T-E-S — the various routes by which people travel, culture travels, culture moves, culture develops, culture changes, cultures migrate, etc.” – Stuart Hall
