Recorded and published today in New York City:
“The Young Karl Marx”: Raoul Peck on New Film Examining How Marx
Developed Critique of Capitalism
The film’s release comes as the head of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, broke his silence after last week’s Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, attacking gun control advocates as communists in an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.
We speak with acclaimed Haitian filmmaker and political activist Raoul Peck about his new film and the role of Marxism in organizing for gun reform.
