Winner of the AUDIENCE AWARD for DOCUMENTARY in WORLD CINEMA at the 2004 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL and numerous other awards including 7 audience choice awards. Based on the book: \\\"The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power\\\" by Joel Bakan. Available at http://gallery.bcentral.com/Gallery/ProductDetails.aspx?GID=5059307&PID=3128968&page=1&sortOrder=0

A darkly amusing account of the institution\\\'s evolution as a legal \\\"person,\\\" THE CORPORATION is a powerful indictment of the roots of corporate power. So, what kind of person is it? The filmmakers conclude that a person whose prime directive is to produce ever-increasing profit for it\\\'s shareholders -- regardless of the cost to people or the planet -- fits the diagnostic criteria of a psychopath. Featuring interviews with CEO\\\'s and top-level executives from some of the worlds largest corporations and critical thinkers: Noam Chomsky, Peter Drucker, Milton Friedman, Naomi Klein, Vandana Shiva, Steve Wilson, Jane Akre and muckraking filmmaker Michael Moore.
