Marx Reloaded is a new documentary that examines the relevance of German socialist and philosopher Karl Marx's ideas for understanding the global economic crisis. Recent events triggered the deepest global recession in 70 years and prompted the US government to spend more than a trillion dollars to rescue its banking system from collapse. Today a new generation of philosophers, artists and political activists are returning to Marx's ideas in order to try to make sense of the crisis and to consider whether a world without — or beyond — capitalism is possible. Interviews with leading experts include Michael Hardt, Antonio Negri, Nina Power, Jacques Rancière, Peter Sloterdijk, Alberto Toscano, and Slavoj Zizek. (2011, 52 min, digital)

Preceded by the short The Immigrant, Charlie Chaplin’s poignant and hilarious tale of the immigrant’s journey and subsequent class struggles. (1917, 20 min, 16mm)
