The Corporation, 2004, 145', VOSE

Directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott, 2004, 145', VOSE


Based on Joel Bakan's book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power , this documentary makes a compelling analysis of the dominant institution of the 21 st century. The film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist's couch, diagnosing the basic characteristics of this obviously "sick patient": lying for profit, seeking maximum benefits, a lack of conscience. Through interviews with the likes of Noam Chomsky, Vandana Shiva, Michael Moore, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman and over 40 professionals, The Corporation explores the real workings of the pharmaceutical industry and large media groups. The documentary has won more than 26 awards and was produced with the support of educational associations, alternate media and the voluntary participation of those interviewed.

The Observatori de Resistències i Subcultures (RiSc) which has started projects like "Malababa" and whose work is based on counter-advertising and graphic dissidence presents the documentary film.
