Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, The Corporation explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. The filmmakers have made a huge and complex topic easy to follow, often amusing and completely riveting. This is essential viewing for students and citizens worldwide.
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.
