Film Screening Of The Young Karl Marx At The Goethe-Institut


The Goethe-Institut will be screening The Young Karl Marx on Monday, 25 March 2019. Follow Marx’s journey into becoming one of the founding father’s of the Communist movement. 

What Is It?

The Goethe-Institut are hosting a screening of The Young Karl Marx, which details the beginnings of Marx’s work with Frederick Engels on The Communist Manifesto in 1843 Paris. The film follows a 26-year-old Karl Marx, living in exile with his wife. He meets Friedrich Engels, whose industrialist father runs a cotton mill in Manchester. The two young men spark up a friendship and start writing revolutionary texts together. They seek out contact with the utopian workers’ movement “League of the Just”, all the while facing resistance in France, Belgium and England – as well as from within their “own” ranks. As they struggle for nothing less than a new social order, they finally complete their most influential work, The Communist Manifesto. 

The film is in German, but non-German speakers need fear not, as there are English subtitles.
