Special Screenings

Capital / Costa Gavras

The story of the unstoppable ascent of Marc Tourneuil, an expendable servant of Capital who became its undisputed master. In the director’s words: “We are slaves to Capital. We tremble when it trembles. We celebrate when it grows and triumphs. Who will set us free? Should we liberate ourselves? We should at the very least know those who serve it and how”.
