BJFF Presents: “The Young Karl Marx”

November 12, 2017 Brookline $16.00 0
The Young Karl Marx

This biopic by Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) finds Karl Marx in 1844 when he and his wife Jenny have been exiled to Paris. There, Marx, a radical German journalist, meets Friedrich Engels, the rebellious son of a wealthy factory owner. Together, these new best friends – brilliant, insolent, and sharp-witted young men from good families – will go on to found the Communist League and to write its defining document, The Communist Manifesto. But in order to create the biggest theoretical and political transformation of the world since the Renaissance, they must withstand censorship, police raids, riots, and political upheavals.

Official Selection, Berlin International Film Festival, 2017.

Co-Presented with IFFBoston and Roxbury International Film Festival.
