Socialist Night School Film Night: The Young Karl Marx
July 16, 2019
Join your comrades of East Bay DSA for a showing of Raoul Peck's 2017 film, "The Young Karl Marx". Due to time constraints, we'll be starting sharply at 7PM, so arrive on time!
From The Intercept, “'The Young Karl Marx' tracks Marx’s career from the turbulent years of 1843 through 1848, spanning the philosopher-cum-economist’s exile from Germany at age 26 through the publication of the 'Communist Manifesto,' a multi-lingual reading of which the film concludes with. Its most important plot point is his meeting a bright-eyed, similarly young Friedrich Engels in France, and the core story traces the development of their friendship and intellectual partnership. While it flirts with the conventions of period dramas, 'The Young Marx' is, above all, an ideological coming-of-age story for a generation doing exactly that.”
