The Corporation

leave a comment »

I bet you met at least one person who kept saying that corporations are bad. Almost pure evil! We all heard that so many times that it became a slogan. So we all know they’re bad but it really means nothing now. At the end of day we keep buying from them and we even keep working for them. Some of us don’t give a damn about it, some of us have no choice and some of us like it. There are even people who think Tesco is great because they sell cheap veggies! Well, cheap prices have its price. If you ever wondered what the hell is all about here’s a thing for you. A must-see documentary, a classic you’d say.

The Corporation explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement. The Corporation is transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics – including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change. The film looks at the concept of the corporation throughout recent history up to its present-day dominance.

We’re showing The Corporation on 18th of February (8pm) in The Happy Pear in Greystones.

Free entry! See you there!
