The Young Karl Marx (Der Junge Karl Marx) Dir: Raoul Peck 118 mins 28th Jan Venue: South Tipperary Arts Centre Presented in co-operation with the Goethe-Institut Irland. Raoul Peck, follow up to his critically acclaimed documentary ‘I am not your Negro’, with a biopic of Karl Marx (August Diehl) that focuses on his relationship with English industrialist Friedrich Engels (Stefan Konarske). In 1843, the 26 year old Marx is living in exile with his wife Jenny (Phantom Thread’s Vicky Krieps) in Paris, where he meet Engels. Quickly befriending one another, they set about writing revolutionary texts, seek out contact with utopian workers movements and clash with the authorities of France, Belgium and England – as they struggle for nothing less that a new social order. In the midst of turmoil and class conflict, together they complete the Communist Manifesto – a text that will change the world.
