Coming to virtual theatrical today, Friday, May 1:
CAPITAL IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
DOC NYC, Melbourne, New Zealand, Jerusalem, Hamburg
An adaptation of the unexpected international bestselling economics book.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Based on economist Thomas Piketty’s groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, this accessible and enlightening adaptation explores the history of wealth, power, and inequality from the French Revolution to the present day. Is today’s ever-widening gap between the rich and the poor an aberration, or just the way capitalism is meant to work? Drawing on experts, historians, and even THE SIMPSONS, Justin Pemberton’s film offers a thought-provoking reframing of global economics and a caution for the future.
