On Thursday 15th of October, it is time for the next UpF documentary club. This time we will screen “MARX RELOADED” in collaboration with Cinema Politica and Folkuniversitetet which will be followed by a discussion.
Referring to the financial crisis in 2008-2009, this film problematises economic theories and ideologies, particularly the very familiar ideologies communism and capitalism. The financial crisis triggered the deepest global recession in 70 years and prompted the US government to spend more than 1 trillion dollars in order to rescue the banking system from collapse. The film is produced and directed by Jason Baker for the German film studio Medea Film. The film focuses on a marxistic perspective while also including sceptics of the ideology in
order to create a productive discussion related to the economical crisis. The implications of the crisis can still be felt by many countries throughout the world which makes the topics of the film suitable for discussions about economic ideologies, theories and the future of economics regardless of the fact that the movie was released in 2011.
