About the Film
The Corporation (2003) examined an institution within society and diagnosed it as psychopath. With The New Corporation co-directors Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott are back with their lightning-rod of a sequel that reveals a world now fully remade in the corporation’s image, perilously close to losing democracy. They trace the devastating consequences, connect the dots, and now with the #1000 Screenings campaign they hit the streets to join in the resistance and change movements 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.
