This film unpacks the devastating power of corporations to achieve profit at any cost versus the individuals and movements determined to secure a more sustainable future for us all.
The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel
“There is a new spirit out there saying: 500 years of colonialism is enough. 200 years of corporate rule is enough.”
The timely sequel to the multi-award-winning The Corporation sets its sights on the sly rebranding of corporations as socially conscious entities – on a mission to convince the public they want to use their power to better the world. In sharp contrast, we witness recent groundswells of resistance as people take action worldwide in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future, creating hope that current world events might yet offer a catalyst for change. From the climate crisis and spiralling inequality, the rise of the ultra-right and racial injustice, the film unpacks the devastating power of corporations to achieve profit at any cost versus the individuals and movements determined to secure a more sustainable future for us all.
