The Young Karl Marx directed by Raoul Peck (France/Germany/Belgium) 2017 is a follow-up work to I Am Not Your Negro.
This narrative feature deals with the collaboration between the youthful Marx and Engels during a troubling period of history.
Even though the two men come from different backgrounds, they share a deep antipathy toward the abusive power exercised by the ruling class.
While their writings and organizing efforts influenced many of the changes that followed, the social revolution they desired has yet to occur.
The film will screen a final time Saturday 5 August 2017 at the Smith Rafael in San Rafael during San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 37.
