The Corporation – Documentary

Encore +– Nov 6, 2017

Based on Joel Bakan’s bestseller The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, this 26-award-winning documentary explores a corporation’s inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures. One hundred and fifty years ago, a corporation was a relatively insignificant entity. Today, it is a vivid, dramatic, and pervasive presence in all our lives. Like the Church, the Monarchy and the Communist Party in other times and places, a corporation is today’s dominant institution. Charting the rise of such an institution aimed at achieving specific economic goals, the documentary also recounts victories against this apparently invincible force.

Ce documentaire 26 fois primé est inspiré du livre à succès de Joel Bakan intitulé The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power qui examine les rouages, l’histoire étrange, les pratiques controversées et l’avenir potentiel d’une corporation. Il y a cent cinquante ans, une telle entité était sans grande importance. Dans le quotidien actuel, une corporation a une présence vivante et marquante qui se manifeste partout. Elle est devenue une institution dominante comme l’ont été jadis l’Église, la monarchie et le parti communiste. Ce film explique son essor et les objectifs économiques précis qui constituent sa raison d’être. Il raconte aussi des victoires arrachées à cette force vraisemblablement irréductible.
