Grab a bowl of popcorn, your drink of choice and join us to watch and discuss the documentary The Corporation:
Based on Joel Bakan’s bestseller The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, this 26-award-winning documentary explores a corporation’s inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures. One hundred and fifty years ago, a corporation was a relatively insignificant entity. Today, it is a vivid, dramatic, and pervasive presence in all our lives. Like the Church, the Monarchy and the Communist Party in other times and places, a corporation is today’s dominant institution. Charting the rise of such an institution aimed at achieving specific economic goals, the documentary also recounts victories against this apparently invincible force.
We have narrowed down the film from its original 2-1/2 hours to focus on particular segments of interest, interspersed with discussion and conversation. Extra credit to those who watch it in its entirety before we meet! You can stream it here:
