K is for Karl: Revolution

Alternative title
Revolution (Episode 3)
Synopsis
A series of five short films on the ideas of Karl Marx to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his birth.
In the third episode of the series, Paul Mason travels to Paris, where Marx arrived on 8 March 1848 after being blamed for the 1848 revolutions in many European countries. Marx drew lessons from these experiences "which still offer many important insights today, in the 21st century, as we fight for democracy and social justice." [5 minutes]

The other films are: Alienation, Communism, Exploitation and the Future of the Machines. Commissioned by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.
