On the occasion of the 200th anniversary year of the birth of Karl Marx, the father of scientific socialism and the science of the proletariat revolution, Hyderabad Cinephiles is organising a Movie screening of The movie 'The Young Karl Marx'. The screening will be followed by a discussion on the story line and art of this movie. This movie screening is an attempt to remember this great revolutionary thinker. After the film, we will also talk about 'Relevance of Marx in today's context '.

The famous director Raúl Peck's movie 'The Young Karl Marx' is about the two great thinkers of 19th century, Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, whose genius in the quest of science to change the world and their compositions until the writing of 'Communist Manifesto' is interestingly captured in the movie. We also meet Marx's life partner Jenny, along with many such people of that time, Prudhon, Bakunin, Weitling, Bruno bauer, Ruge etc. The polemics of Marx and Engels with these thinkers is also brilliantly captured in the movie. The film presents a very important phase of Marx's life and keenly presents his life and thoughts.
