New Zealand | 2019 | dir. Justin Pemberton, with Thomas Piketty, Francis Fukuyama, Joseph Stiglitz, Vanessa Redgrave

Based on the international bestseller by French 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. Traveling through time, the film assembles archive footage with interviews, delivering an insightful, accessible and empowering journey through our history and our present.
