The Young Karl Marx

The Young Karl Marx

Writer/director Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) continues his exploration of the lives of intellectuals who challenged the ideas and power of the oppressors. We meet the young Karl Marx as he finds his intellectual partner in the dandy Fredrick Engels. A film filled with the energy and excitement of young men with new ideas intent on overthrowing an old order. Not just in the background are the wives and families following them into debate and exile.
