About the Film

The Corporation (2003) examined an institution within society. The New Corporation reveals a world now fully remade in the corporation’s image, perilously close to losing democracy. We trace the devastating consequences, connecting the dots between then and now, and inspire with stories of resistance and change from around the world.

In the face of fracturing societies, climate change, and the hollowing out of democracy, The New Corporation is a cry for social justice, deeper democracy, and transformative solutions.

      Impact

      In 2003, we released a film, The Corporation, that helped ignite resistance to the dangerously expanding power of corporations. The film became a global hit. But the problems it revealed only worsened. So now we’ve made a sequel – an unfortunately necessary sequel. And we need your help to make an impact.
