Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Crew
Directed by Justin Pemberton


Based on the international bestseller by rock-star economist Thomas Piketty (which sold over three million copies worldwide and landed 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.

Reviews

"The rock star economist of our time."

"Piketty has transformed our economic discourse; we’ll never talk about wealth and inequality the same way we used to."
