It’s 1844 and struggling 26-year-old Karl Marx is in exile in Paris. He meets a young Friedrich Engels, son of a factory owner, who has just published a study uncovering the miserable conditions in which the English working class must live. Raoul Peck (I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO) delivers a meticulous portrait of two men on a quest for a human society, and a daring account of the emergence of the Communist League and the Communist Manifesto.

“Both intellectually serious and engagingly free-spirited.” – New York Times
