Synopsis

Based on the best-selling and highly influential book of the same name written by French economist Thomas Pikkety, this broad but incredibly accessible documentary aims to explain the history and intricacies of the capitalist system and what it means for the future of society. Travelling through time, from the French Revolution to the Wall Street crash, the film aims to focus on the ways in which people accumulate wealth and power and how capitalism, in its current form, favours the rich and powerful. With some of the world’s leading experts on the subject and influential figures relaying their thoughts and a number of pop culture references scattered throughout, 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century' asks the question whether capitalism will be our savior or our downfall.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
