Directed by Raoul Peck
2017, Germany, 118 min
French, German and English with subtitles

Fresh off the success of his James Baldwin documentary, I Am Not Your Negro, Haitian-born director Raoul Peck tackles the early days of the friendship between the legendary Karl Marx (August Diehl) and Friedrich Engels (Stefan Konarske) as they struggled to establish the Communist Party and complete the Communist Manifesto. Together, between censorship and police raids, riots and political upheavals, they presided over the birth of the labor movement, which until then had been mostly makeshift and unorganized.

Sponsored by Mayworks. 

Reviews

The film gives you a real sense of what radical politics was about: somehow the spectacle of fiercely angry people talking about ideas becomes absorbing and even gripping. It works due to the intelligence of the acting and the stamina and concentration of the writing and directing.
