Competition - Grand reportage

Capital in the 21st Century

by Justin Pemberton

More capital is equal to more social progress? Adapted from Thomas Piketty's best-seller, and co-written by the economist, this brilliantly-produced documentary examines the notions of money and wealth in Western societies, from the French Revolution to the present day. Blending references to pop culture and contributions from some of the most influential experts of our time, the viewer is taken on a breathtaking journey, with wealth and power on the one hand, social progress and inequality on the other.
