Synopsis: Corporations have steadily grown from humble beginnings to become the dominant force in economic, political and social spheres. In the relentless pursuit for profit there is, of course, a significant downside.
A documentary that literally leaps off the screen to shake us out of our complacency
Seven years in the making, Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbot and Joel Bakin have delivered a superbly crafted documentary that lays bare the pathological pursuit of profit above all else. If the truth can set us free, then history will reward The Corporation for the insight into one of the most exploitative forces of our materialistic world. Juxtaposing leading intellectual voices of decent against whistle blowers and CEO?s, it creates a spellbinding narrative that is difficult to ignore. Time to wake up and smell the coffee before the air we breathe is literally bottled and sold back to us. A documentary that literally leaps off the screen to shake us out of our complacency.
