Capital in the 21st Century

May 1, 2020 - June 11, 2020

Watch this film right here, right now

Based on the international bestseller by rock-star economist Thomas Piketty (which sold over three million copies worldwide and landed Piketty on Time Magazine‘s list of most influential people), this entertaining documentary is an accessible 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 combines pop-culture references and interviews with some of the world’s most influential experts to deliver an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.
