Revolutionary, radical, polarising. It is impossible to imagine the history of the 20th century without Rosa Luxemburg. But who was Rosa Luxemburg and what did she stand for? Her legacy is told in four short films, from her thoughts to her work.
Rosa Luxemburg flees Poland, the revolution breaks out and she finds herself unrecognised in the middle of the action in Warsaw. After her stay in prison, she writes a text that shakes the reformist leaders of Western Europe to their foundations. Eventually, she becomes the leading theoretician of German social democracy.
Rosa Luxemburg explains Marxism to the German workers - but capitalism has changed. On the eve of World War I, she writes a book predicting the downfall of imperialism and the death of millions of people. She goes too far in the eyes of some revolutionaries.
The German Empire collapses. Released from prison, Rosa Luxemburg rushes to Berlin to found the communist party. After a failed uprising, she is arrested and murdered. Her vision of what a workers' revolution means lives on!
What can we learn from Rosa Luxemburg for today's struggles? Paul Mason and Katja Kipping in conversation.
