Our Virtual Cinematheque Series brings you “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” based on the international bestseller that sold over three million copies worldwide and landed economist Thomas Piketty on Time’s list of most influential people.
This captivating documentary is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, a film that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, and shines a new light on today’s growing inequalities. Traveling through time, the film assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world’s most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.
