One hundred and fifty years ago, the 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, the corporation is today’s dominant institution. But history humbles dominant institutions.

All have been crushed, belittled or absorbed into some new order. The corporation is unlikely to be the first to defy history. In this documentary, the far-reaching repercussions of the corporation’s increasing preeminence are examined.

The film invites CEOs, whistle-blowers, brokers, gurus, spies, players, pawns and pundits on a graphic and engaging quest to reveal the corporation’s inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures. Based on screenwriter Joel Bakan’s book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power.
