About Capital in the Twenty-First Century:

2020. 103 m. Justin Pemberton. Kino Lorber Films. New Zealand. English/German & Swedish with subtitles.

Based on the international bestseller by rock-star economist Thomas Piketty (which sold over three million copies worldwide and landed Piketty on Time‘s list of most influential people), this captivating documentary is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power—a film that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress and shines a new light on today’s growing inequalities. Traveling through time, the film assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world’s most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.
