The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel

The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel

Greek Premiere

From gatherings of corporate elites in Davos, to climate change and spiraling inequality; the rise of ultra-right leaders to Covid-19 and racial injustice, this meticulous study of the corporate takeover of society looks at corporations’ devastating power. Countering this is a groundswell of resistance worldwide as people take to the streets in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future. In the face of spiraling inequality, climate change, and the hollowing out of democracy, the sequel to the legendary film The Corporation is a cry for social justice, deeper democracy, and transformative solutions.
