SUNDAY SCREENING: ‘How Wealth Becomes Power’ (2018)

Our weekly documentary film curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE.

Germany is one of the world’s richest countries, but inequality is on the rise. While the power elite are pulling ahead, the poor are falling behind at an ever more rapid rate. Meanwhile, the middle classes is shrinking at an ever-increasing rate too. Hard work no longer leads to advancement. This trend is being reflected across Europe and North America too. Here, the filmmakers interview leading researchers and experts on the topic, and also shadow members of the super class, including the German real estate mogul, Christoph Gröner, who believes that, “Entrepreneurs are more powerful than politicians, because we’re more independent.” This film takes a close look at the lives and mentality of the ultra rich, and evaluates their own narrow worldview, as well as how they view themselves as fit to rule over the rest of the population.
