About the Film

  • 10 Audience Choice Awards including the 2004 Sundance Film Festival

Written by Joel Bakan. Directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott.

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?”

Released in 2004, 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.

Along with the groundbreaking 145-minute theatrical version of the film, the two-disc DVD has eight hours of never-before-seen footage. You can also buy or rent the digital version to download or stream.
