Synopsis:

In 1843, 26-year-old Karl Marx is living in exile with his wife in Paris, where he meets Friedrich Engels, whose industrialist father runs a cotton mill in Manchester. The two young men become friends, start writing revolutionary texts together, seek out contact with the utopian workers’ movement “League of the Just”, and face 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. Finally, they complete their influential work, “The Communist Manifesto”.

 

In collaboration with the Goethe-Institut

The Goethe-Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore was founded in 1960 with the objectives of promoting the German language, fostering intercultural exchange and supporting local art initiatives and engaging with civic and urban issues.
