First Trailer for Eye-Opening 'Capital in the 21st Century' Doc on Money
"It's time to question where true power lies." Yes it is. Transmission Films revealed this very first trailer for the documentary Capital in the 21st Century earlier in the summer, though we're just catching up to it now. The film premiered at the Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals, but still doesn't have an official release date set yet. Capital in the 21st Century (or Capital in the Twenty-First Century) is an adaptation of the best-selling book of the same name by Thomas Piketty, a searing examination of capitalism and how it has ruined society. Described as an "eye-opening journey through wealth and power, that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, shining a new light on the world around us and its growing inequalities." These kind of documentaries that tell us the scary truth, that most don't want to hear, are important & must be shared with everyone everywhere. Take a look below.
