Screening of The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel and Q & A with Co-Director Joel Bakan

Please join us for a screening of The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel with 2019 Public Humanities Hub Fellow and Co-Director Joel Bakan. Following the screening, we will host a moderated Q&A.

About the Film

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. We trace the devastating consequences, connecting the dots between then and now, and inspire with stories of resistance and change from around the world.

In the face of fracturing societies, climate change, and the hollowing out of democracy, The New Corporation is a cry for social justice, deeper democracy, and transformative solutions.
