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

Swagger of Thieves is a heartfelt, hilarious and heartbreaking trip into the reality of the hardest-charging band of a generation. Whether you come as a fan of the music, as a fan of solid filmmaking, or as a bystander wondering what all the noise is about, you’ll be seeing one of the most intelligently assembled and truthfully told documentaries New Zealand has ever produced.
