May 1st a special film series is coming out : "Marx Is Back",
a mini-series of fiction based on the Communist Manifesto !

"Marx Is Back" takes place in todays’ Argentina, which suffers like other countries the blows of economic crises. Workers of a printing house are facing suspensions and lay-offs; a group of workers are organizing to fight back as the union officials try to push them aside. At the same time, Martin, part of the workers’ group, starts to read the Communist Manifesto and ends up meeting Karl Marx himself, is he dreaming or is it reality ? All through the episodes Marx appears in the story, exposing his revolutionary ideas regarding social classes, the crises, the State and communism.

The famous actor Carlos Weber ("Marx en el Soho") plays the role of Karl Marx in this story along with a group of young actors from the independent national scene.
The series was produced by the IPS (Instituto del Pensamiento Socialista) and directed by the Contraimagen group and the TVPTS (online TV channel). It was initiated by the PTS (Socialist Workers’ Party), a member of the Frente de Izquierda y de los Trabajadores (Left and Workers’ Front), as part of its work to spread Marxist ideas throughout the country.

Coming out fittingly on May 1st, International Workers’ Day, this fictional mini-series aims at uniting actual history with the fundamental ideas of the classic Marxist pamphlet "The Communist Manifesto".

The 4 episodes will be issued online throughout May, each Thursday, in Spanish with subtitles available in English, French and Spanish. They’ll be available on www.tvpts.tv, www.pts.org.ar, and social networks.
