This too shall pass.

CAPITAL IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
USA 2020; 103 min. NR. English and subtitles. Direction: Justin Pemberton
Based on the international bestseller by economist Thomas Piketty, this documentary is an eye-opening journey through wealth and power, a film that breaks the popular assumption that the accumulation of capital runs hand in hand with social progress, and shines a new light on today’s growing inequalities. Traveling through time, the film assembles accessible pop-culture references coupled with interviews of some of the world’s most influential experts delivering an insightful and empowering journey through the past and into our future.
“Will we keep worshipping Reagan/Thatcher’s ‘war on the welfare state?’ Will we ever get wise to the hoax of ‘trickle down economics?’ Will we continue to buy into the lie of the ‘death tax,’ promulgated by the wealthy to ensure they stay wealthy and you stay broke? Or will enough of us turn off the Murdoch media long enough to awaken from our daze and act and vote in our own best interests?
“You mention any ‘Marx’ that isn’t Groucho, Chico or Harpo and you lose some people’s attention. But Pinketty’s argument, that the feudalism and worker exploitation that Marx was decrying 150 years ago has returned, is worth hearing out in this lively, information-packed and damning documentary.” – Roger Moore, Movie Nation
*****OPENS TUESDAY MAY 12 – BEST OF CATVIDEO FEST: CREATURE COMFORTS EDITION*****
Click the link below for the Cinema 320 landing page. Special ticket price for this very special short subject – anything you choose to pay over 99 cents!
BEST OF CATVIDEO FEST: CREATURE COMFORTS EDITION
USA, 40 minutes. NR. The international language of purrs and meows, which needs no subtitles.
This one really needs no explanation! My ambition is for it to run in the virtual theater at least as long as THE SOUND OF MUSIC played at White City. Since it’s only 40 minutes long, it has a unique ticket price – anything you want to chip in, from 99 cents on up. (Suggested price is $5-$8, but it’s entirely up to you.) Curator Will Vinton has compiled the best short videos from his previous anthologies into a highlight reel that is sure to charm and amuse. This little movie is as irresistible as a stray that follows you home.

Cinema 320’s Virtual Theater puts out a general call to all bibliophiles – paradise awaits you in this fascinating, funny, and occasionally even mind-blowing documentary on some of the country’s greatest rare book dealers and collectors.
“If you count yourself as one of those people who love getting lost in a bookstore, particularly a (slightly) musty one that sells used and rare volumes (and, hopefully, has a cat), then the documentary THE BOOKSELLERS will offer some comfort in this time of deprivation” – LA Times.
