If a corporation was a real "person", what kind of person would it be?

Spread the word! Screening across Canada the new Mark Achbar documentary THE CORPORATION. Most of you will be familiar with the work of Mark Achbar, who co-directed Manufacturing Consent. Noam Chomsky makes a reappearance in this new film, along with Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine), Naomi Klein (No Logo), and a wide range of other talking heads, each with a privileged and fascinating perspective on the issue of corporate unaccountability. Among those interviewed: corporate CEOs, watchdogs, journalists, medical doctors, filmmakers, citizens, Harvard professors ... and the militant activist who lead a successful popular uprising against water privatisation in Bolivia! We go behind closed doors at the Summit of the Americas in Québec to listen in on the schmoozing that took place between corporate advocates and Federal ministers, while some of you were getting tear-gassed in the streets.

This is NOT just another hyperbolic commentary on globalisation. This is

a serious, well-documented, fascinating and encyclopaedic account of the

institution that dominates 21st Century Earth and its inhabitants.

THIS FILM SHOULD BE CORE CURRICULUM FOR EVERY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT IN NORTH

AMERICA.

I agree. This film should be in schools... all schools above public school.

It's only flaw is that the film often repeats itself leading to a punishingly long running time - it's especially punishing if you have to sit in a movie theatre, like I did when it premiered Toronto's Hot Docs documentary festival last year.
