The Corporation

By Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott & Bakan

“The Corporation” was my first foray into documentaries that comment on modern society. This movie looks at the role corporations play in our society, how much power they have and how they influence us. It asks us if the primary role of a company is to make money, how far is it OK for them to go?

If you’ve seen it – great! If you haven’t, I’m curious what you think. Watch it with friends and discuss afterwards. Ask how people feel about the movie, which parts surprised you, which parts really resonated or stuck with you? What will you do differently after watching the movie?
