Fantastyczny dokument. Kopalnia wiedzy na temat tematu. Polecam goraco, zwlaszcza ze w Polsce neoliberalizm dominuje i takich informacji w publicznym dyskursie brak.

Film description

Given the recent global economic crisis Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott's documentary exploration of the phenomenon of the corporation seems especially prescient and even more relevant than when it arrived in 2003. An enormous box office success in Canada and the USA, The Corporation investigates the history and underlying assumptions about this pervasive and powerful economic institution. Based on Joel Bakan's book, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, film probes the social and political implications of corporations, which arrived as legal entities 150 years ago with surprising legal rights and powers. In legal terms the corporation has the legal status of a person, so this film tries to discover just what kind of personality that 'person' would have. Weaving together archival footage, animation, advertising, and a wealth of interviews with CEOs, brokers, corporate gurus and dissenting economists, this densely layered film leaves no corporatist shibboleth unturned. At once ruminative and playful, The Corporation is a philosophical interrogation of one of contemporary civilization's most influential institutions.
