● The Corporation

The Corporation 
by Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott, & Joel Bakan The Corporation - 10th Anniversary Cut from Cinema Politica on Vimeo

This thought provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative film, explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation is transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. 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. // Mark Achbar & Jennifer Abbott, Canada, 2003, 145' // Half of all proceeds from the rental of this video go directly to the artist, and half go to support the work of Cinema Politica.

Another great documentary by Mark Achbar, is the film Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, based on the Edward Herman / Noam Chomsky book titled Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, which also explores the propaganda model of the corporate media.
