Money. Power. Poverty. Inequality. Check out the OFFICIAL TRAILER for CAPITAL IN THE 21st CENTURY.

Based on French economist Thomas Piketty’s ground-breaking global bestseller of the same name, #Capitalinthe21stCentury is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power. See it first at Sydney Film Festival.

The 66th Sydney Film Festival – 5-16 June 2019 Film adaptation of French economist Thomas Piketty’s ground-breaking global bestseller of the same name: an eye-opening journey through wealth and power. Director Justin Pemberton (The Nuclear Comeback, Chasing Great) criss-crosses the world, interviewing some accessibly erudite thinkers such as Faiza Shaheen, Gillian Tett and Joseph Stiglitz, to interpret Piketty’s thesis (No. 1 The New York Times bestseller and over 1.5 million sales) in a cinematic manner. As it riffs through history, Pemberton’s documentary exposes the fraud at the heart of global economics: the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress. Travelling through time from the French Revolution and other huge global shifts, two world wars and through to the rise of new technologies today, the film delivers an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future. Directed by Justin Pemberton 2019 New Zealand, France 103 minutes Unclassified 15+
