Winner of 23 International Awards, The Corporation is an acclaimed documentary film which explores the nature and spectacular rise of the most pervasive institution of our time.
Few words have the baggage that the word corporate does. The majority of workers in the United States work for corporations. These days you’re most likely to hear the word corporate bandied about as a rallying cry. It’s leveled at artists who “sell out,” or go “corporate.” Thrown like pies at politicians with “corporate” interests. Corporate goons are the lynchpins of countless cuckold and old boy jokes. And yet corporations are stronger now than ever, driven by favorable political winds, fed by a steady stream of willing workers, and nestled deep and safe inside the American psyche.
The Corporation‘s directors, Jennifer Abbott and Mark Achbar, attempt to distill all this into a 145-minute film. They succeed brilliantly, providing both entertainment and intellect.
