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.

Change is Coming

These are indeed unprecedented times. Capitalism and corporate influence are wreaking far greater havoc on society than when the original film came out in 2003. Today, we are mired in inequity, racism, injustice, economic exploitation at a scale not seen since the 1920s. But change is coming.
