Based on the international bestseller by rock-star economist Thomas Piketty (which sold over three million copies worldwide and landed Piketty on Time's list of most influential people), this captivating documentary is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, a film that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, and shines a new light on today’s growing inequalities. Traveling through time, the film assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world’s most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.

"It's a massive achievement, turning this weighty volume into enthralling cinema." - Austin Chronicle

"Engaging... [Piketty] is not only a brilliant economist but also one with a gift for making complicated ideas accessible." - The New York Times

“A financial detective story that exposes our current crisis. Provokes a consistent sense of 'Whoa!'" - Variety

“Lively, informative… lays out the economist’s arguments with lucidity and persuasiveness, using a slew of pop-culture references." - Washington Post

"A spry, erudite, and consistently watchable documentary that articulates how we got here, and why things are only going to get worse if we don’t right the balance between economic growth and consolidated wealth." - Indiewire
