We are delighted to launch a series of screenings, featuring exciting German films, in collaboration with the Bangalore International Centre
We begin with
The Young Karl Marx
Director: Raoul Peck
118 min | 2017 | English, French and German with English subtitles
In 1843, 26-year-old Karl Marx is living in exile with his wife in Paris, where he meets Friedrich Engels, whose industrialist father runs a cotton mill in Manchester. The two young men become friends, start writing revolutionary texts together, seek out contact with the utopian workers’ movement “League of the Just”, and face resistance in France, Belgium and England – as well as from within their “own” ranks – as they struggle for nothing less than a new social order. Finally, they complete their influential work, “The Communist Manifesto”.
