Questioning: Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Thomas Piketty

Directed by Justin Pemberton

Following theater closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we'll be giving Capital in the Twenty-First Century a virtual theatrical release and sharing revenue with independent theaters across the country. Scroll down to find a theater near you to support in these uncertain times.
Based on the international bestseller by rock-star economist Thomas Piketty (which sold over three million copies worldwide and landed Piketty on Time's list of most influential people), this captivating documentary is an eye-opening 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 assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world’s most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.
Starting May 1, view the film online and support local indie theaters. And on Sunday, May 3 attend a live roundtable with Thomas Piketty, Gillian Tett, and Ian Bremmer on at 10:00 a.m. hosted by The New Republic.
