"The Young Karl Marx," which is directed by Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck, co-written by Peck and Pascal Bonitzer and stars August Diehl, is a co-production by France, Germany and Belgium. 

It was screened at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2017 and was well received among critics.

The film was imported by China Film Group Corporation, distributed by China Film Co. Ltd and promoted by China Movie Channel's China Home Cinema (CHC). It tells the story of how a young Karl Marx met with German thinker Friedrich Engels to start their communist journey, which led to the writing of The Communist Manifesto.

"'The Young Karl Marx' is an interesting, meaningful and significant movie," said Cao Yin, president and managing director of China Movie Channel. "We present this film to Chinese audience in order to remember the great personality of Karl Marx and revisit his great spirit and brilliant thinking."
