Hot on the heels of I Am Not Your Negro, Raoul Peck is back with another portrait of one of the world’s most influential thinkers. But who was Karl Marx? Philosopher? Predictor of globalisation? 19th Century prophet of exploitation for profit? In 1844, a collective of young Europeans assembled and decided that the world had to change. Marx and his wife Jenny met Manchester textile factory heir, Friedrich Engels and set about organising the newly formed working classes to stand up against poverty, market forces and manipulation. Radical politics take centre stage in this gripping study of revolutionary action. We have nothing to lose but our chains.
