The Corporation - Documentary
Achbar, Mark & Jennifer Abbott
2003, September 10
Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, The Corporation explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation has been transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis for over 10 years.
Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics – including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.
The film is based on the book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power by Joel Bakan.
The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel:
Released September 13, 2020
Directors: Joel Bakan & Jennifer Abbott
The New Corporation reveals how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the sly rebranding of corporations as socially conscious entities. From gatherings of corporate elites in Davos, to climate change and spiralling inequality; the rise of ultra-right leaders to Covid-19 and racial injustice, the film looks at corporations’ devastating power. Countering this is a groundswell of resistance worldwide as people take to the streets in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future.
