Film Description:
"Through the voices of CEOs, whistle-blowers, brokers, gurus, spies, insiders and outsiders, this dense, multi-layered film presents the corporation as a paradox that creates great wealth even as it does enormous—and often hidden—harm. Featuring interviews with Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Naomi Klein, Maude Barlow, Michael Moore and Mark Kingwell, The Corporation charts the spectacular rise of an institution aimed at achieving specific economic goals—but it also recounts victories against this apparently invincible force."
-- Liz Czach (source)
