"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." - New York Times

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

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.
