Film screening “The Young Karl Marx”.
For which ideals did Karl Marx stand for? For whom and which interests was he talking? “We are mistaken if we associate him only with the Soviet Union or the GDR,” says August Diehl, who plays the famous economist in the film “The Young Karl Marx”. The ideas and utopia of communism had a lot to do with the aftermath of the French Revolution, and the big the call for freedom.
“The Young Karl Marx” is the first film about the life of Karl Marx before he wrote the Communist Manifesto. The film sheds light on the path of the young philosopher Marx to a revolutionary, and is dedicated to the emerging friendship with Friedrich Engels, his experiences with political oppression and the debates and promises of a new international socialist movement.
The film is a German-French co-production by film director Raoul Peck. He was born in 1953 in Port-au-Prince. He grew up in what was then Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo), in the US and in France. In Berlin he studied industrial engineering and film. In 1986 he founded Velvet Film in Germany, where all his films are produced.
