From Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott, filmmakers of the multi-award-winning global hit "The Corporation", comes this hard-hitting and timely sequel. "The New Corporation" reveals how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the sly rebranding of corporations as socially conscious entities. From gatherings of corporate elites in Davos, to climate change and spiraling inequality; the rise of ultra-right leaders to COVID-19 and racial injustice, the film looks at corporations’ devastating power. Countering this is a groundswell of resistance worldwide as people take to the streets in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future. In the face of spiraling inequality, climate change, and the hollowing out of democracy, "The New Corporation" is a cry for social justice, deeper democracy, and transformative solutions.
