"The young Karl Marx", a biographical film directed by Raoul Peck that narrates the conception of one of the greatest theoretical and political transformations of the nineteenth century, is the film scheduled for Thursday 16 August 2018 in Piazza Giolitti in Bra, as part of the review of itinerant auteur cinema "Periferia cuore della città".

We are in the forties of the nineteenth century. The young Marx (August Diehl) and his friend Friedrich Engels (Stefan Konarske) give life to a movement capable of emancipating, even beyond the borders of Europe, the oppressed workers of the whole world. These are years of turmoil: in Germany a very active intellectual opposition is strongly repressed, in France the workers of the Faubourg Saint-Antoine have started to march. Even in England the people took to the streets. At 26 years Karl Marx takes his woman on the road to exile. In Paris he met Friedrich Engels, son of a great industrialist, who studied the working conditions of the English proletariat. These two young people from different social backgrounds, but both brilliant, passionate, provocative and entertaining will succeed in creating a unitary revolutionary movement.

Opening the evening will be the screening of a fragment of an interview with Gino Borgna who, syndicalist in Bra in the fifties, tells his experience in this field in the city. The short film, by Fabio Bailo, Cultural Assessor, is made with audiovisual materials drawn from the archives of the Historical Institute of Bra and of the Braidesi.

Tuesday 21 August is planning the recovery of the projection, previously canceled due to bad weather, in San Michele fraction: from 21.30, on the big screen "All the world's money" preceded by a video-testimony by Piero Fraire dedicated to "utin" on the hills around Bra.
