The Young Marx
Oscar nominated Haitian director Raoul Peck( “I’m Not Your Negro”) takes up the life and works of Karl Marx, instigator of one of the most important social revolutions in history, along with his friend Frederick Engels.
From the excellent dialogue, acting, editing, the intermingling of languages depending on the locations, and the delicate music, he pulls us into the young lives of Marx and Engels in the 1840s, as they took on the incredible idea of setting workers free and giving them decent wages. It was a dangerous and revolutionary idea for the times.
From Germany to Manchester, Paris, London and Brussels, Peck follows dedicated men and women who believed in the new idea of equality and freedom from the slave labor of the Industrial Revolution – a revolution that had benefited the industrialists and condemned the workers to poverty and horrific living conditions.
