The Corporation

December 4, 2006

Tää filmi taisi tulla jossain vaiheessa Suomen telkkarista, vai muistanko väärin? Joka tapauksessa sen voi nyt downloadata verkosta. Kyse on dokumentissa, joka tutkii miksi ja miten kaupallisilla yhtiöillä on nykyään niin paljon valtaa, myös ja varsinkin mediavaltaa. Miten yhtiömediaa luetaan? Konteksti on Yhdysvallat, mutta moni asia vaikuttaa “maapalloistumisen” myötä täälläkin. Elokuvan esittelyä:

Winner of 24 International Awards, 10 of them Audience Choice Awards including the Audience Award for Documentary in World Cinema at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, the movie is poignant look at how just how much corporations have come to control so many parts of our lives and society.

THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Footage from pop culture, advertising, TV news, and corporate propaganda, illuminates the corporation’s grip on our lives. Taking its legal status as a “person” to its logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” Provoking, witty, sweepingly informative, The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics – including Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.
