Description: Screening of the film The Young Karl Marx, directed by Raoul Peck (2017)

Synopsis: 26-year-old Karl Marx embarks with his wife, Jenny, on the road to exile. In 1844 Paris, he meets Friedrich Engels, an industrialist's son, who investigated the sordid birth of the British working class. Engels, the dandy, provides the last piece of the puzzle to the young Karl Marx's new vision of the world. Together, between censorship and the police repression, riots and political upheavals, they will lead the labour movement during its development into a modern era.
