Storyline

Adapting one of the most groundbreaking and powerful books of our time, Capital in the 21st Century is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, shining a new light on the world around us and its growing inequalities. Traveling through time from the French Revolution and other huge global shifts, to world wars and through to the rise of new technologies today, 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.

Brilliant and thought provoking
27 October 2019 | by htcltdSee all my reviews

It's impossible not to be deeply affected by this film. It brings out the gross inequalities that exist today, but more importantly, how they relate to the history of the last 200+ years.

I wish our politicians would see this film and act ... before it is too late!
