An Evening with the Directors of The Corporation
Thursday, June 3, 7-10 pm
$15/Filmmaker-level members; $20/others.
Please join us for a special evening with the makers of The Corporation.
They will discuss the process of creating this complex, exhaustive, and highly entertaining documentary. Filmmakers will show clips from the film and discuss their strategies as independent filmmakers.
Mark Achbar, co-director of the influential and inventive Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, teams up with co-director Jennifer Abbott and writer Joel Bakan to examine the far-reaching repercussions of
the corporation's increasing preeminence. Based on Bakan's book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, the film is a timely, critical inquiry that invites CEOs, whistle-blowers, brokers, gurus, spies, players, pawns and pundits on a graphic and engaging quest to reveal the corporation's inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures. This is a perfect opportunity to talk to the filmmakers in person.
