The Corporation charts the spectacular rise of the corporation as a dramatic, pervasive presence in our everyday lives. With a deft mix of humor, visual panache, and seriousness, filmmakers Mark Achbar (Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media), Jennifer Abbott and writer Joel Bakan have fashioned a timely, entertaining critique of global conglomerates in the modern age. Based on Bakan's book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, the film is a graphic and engaging quest to reveal the corporation's inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts, and possible futures. Featuring illuminating interviews with Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 9/11), historian Howard Zinn, No Logo author Naomi Klein (The Take), as well as corporate honchos, whistleblowers, and big business spies, The Corporation charts the spectacular rise of an institution aimed at achieving specific economic goals as it also recounts victories against this apparently invincible force. Winner of 22 international awards and honors, including the Sundance World Cinema-Documentary Audience Award!
