Highly political film about the meeting between a journalist exiled to France (Karl Marx) and the rebellious son of a wealthy German industrialist (Friedrich Engels). Sparks fly. The director of the hard-hitting documentary I’m Not Your Negro (2016) delves into the early years of the author of Das Kapital and his meeting with his alter ego, Friedrich Engels. This elegant, fast-paced biopic about 19th-century schools of thought and worker movements holds up a mirror to today’s world, where social inequality is worse than ever.IN THE PRESENCE OF THE DIRECTOR
