Capital in the 21st Century

Show trailer
A film version of Thomas Piketty's best-seller from 2014 has not become less relevant since the book was first published. 700 pages of razor-sharp conclusions in just 100 minutes!

Thomas Piketty's 700-page magnum opus about the world's growing level of inequality became an unexpected best-seller in 2014. But if your own copy is still gathering dust on a shelf, you can look forward to the documentary version. A lively and fast-paced adaptation, where Piketty is joined by distinguished economists such as Joseph Stiglitz and Francis Fukuyama to give us a razor-sharp presentation of his theses. Accompanied by archive footage, pop cultural references and a soundtrack that does not hold back from associating the arguments for higher taxation and broader ownership with Lorde's social satire in the pop hit 'Royals'.
