About the Film

From Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott, filmmakers of the multi-award-winning global hit The Corporation, comes this hard-hitting and timely sequel.

The Corporation (2003) examined an institution within society. The New Corporation reveals a world now fully remade in the corporation’s image, perilously close to losing democracy. The New Corporation ​reveals how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the sly rebranding of corporations as socially conscious entities. 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, the film 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.

The Q&A will be moderated by: 

  • Nicole Barrett, Assistant Professor of Teaching, Director of International Justice and Human Rights Clinic at the Allard School of Law
  • Mary Chapman, Professor of English, Academic Director of Public Humanities Hub


Co-sponsored by the UBC Public Humanities Hub and the Allard School of Law’s International Justice & Human Rights Clinic and Centre for Business Law
