Today the corporation is a vivid, dramatic and pervasive presence in all of our lives. In this complex, exhaustive and highly entertaining documentary, Mark Achbar (co-director of 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. The film's graphic and engaging quest reveals the corporation's inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures. Includes insight from Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Howard Zinn and Milton Friedman.
Author Ted Nace will be at the Berkeley premiere.
Show is scheduled from June 11th to the 17th. Also featured at San Francisco's Castro Theater since June 4th until the 16th.
