Tri-City Independent Documentary Series presents, 'The Corporation'
Submitted By Jane Bark
Winner of 26 international awards, 10 Audience Choice Awards, including the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.
Thought provoking, sweepingly informative, and often funny, 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.
Much more than a movie, The Corporation has transformed audiences and dazzled critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. Living up to its title, the film explores the true nature and spectacular rise of the dominant economic institution of our time. Taking a corporation's 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?" Unfortunately for all of us, the diagnosis does not suggest a healthy effect on the body politic.
Discussion will be led by Sharat G. Lin, PhD of the San Jose Peace & Justice Center. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, India, and labor migration.
