With people becoming increasingly aware of the social issues affect their lives, Metronome will be releasing Mark Ackbar and Jennifer Abbott’s acclaimed documentary The Corporation. Winner of 9 international film awards – including the prestigious Audience Award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival -, The Corporation is a powerful and entertaining look at the eponymous “Corporation”, a pervasive presence in all our lives, much like the Church, the Monarchy and the Communist Party were in other times and places.
Using dramatic case studies and interviews with leading contemporary figures – including Fahrenheit 9/11 director Michael Moore, best-selling “No Logo” author Naomi Klein and long-winded anarchist heartthrob Noam Chomsky, the film explores the impact the corporation has on our environment, our children, our health, our media, our democracy and even out genes, and what people are doing in response.
The Corporation will be released as a two-disc Special Edition DVD by Metrodome – hopefully not a corporation – with special edition features including deleted scenes, trailer, “Majority Report” interview with Joel Bakan, Katherine Dodds on Grassroots Marketing, audio commentary from Ackbar and Abbott and more. Society comes crashing down on March 7th.
