“Births, Deaths and Marriages is an assemblage of good ideas, smart choices and some real inventiveness and nous, in the service of a yarn worth telling.” – Stuff.co.nz

 

Capital posterJoin DEGNZ and Rialto Cinemas for a Q&A screening of New Zealand documentary Capital in the 21st Century. Special guest director Justin Pemberton will be present for a half-hour audience Q&A after the film.

Adapting one of the most groundbreaking and powerful books of our time, Capital in the 21st Century is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, shining a new light on the world around us and its growing inequalities.

“Delivers an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.” – Sydney Film Festival
