Acerca de 107. Capital in the 21st Century
GENERAL EVENT – FILM SCREENING
CAPITAL IN THE 21ST CENTURY
SUNDAY 17 MAY – 1.00-2.45PM
HERALD THEATRE, AOTEA CENTRE
An unlikely literary hit five years ago, the hefty treatise Capital in the 21st Century by the French economist/rock star Thomas Piketty called for reforms to capitalism and a stop to the accrual of obscene wealth. Local documentarian Justin Pemberton’s energetic and slick adaptation may be just the thing for those who couldn’t make it through the macroeconomic analysis. To illustrate the complexities, the filmmaker deploys archival footage, talking heads (Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz and American political scientist Francis Fukuyama as well as Piketty himself), songs from Lorde and clips from the movies Utu, and Pride and Prejudice – featuring Mr Darcy.
