This Sunday Feb 13th, at 3pm, in our new office - The Workers Solidarity
Movement presents The Corporation - a film by Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott,
Joel Bakan and Harold Crooks. The screening is the first in an upcoming series
of Anarchist Cultural Afternoons organised by the WSM and open to all.
Based on Bakan's book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and
Power, the film is a timely, critical inquiry that 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. Featuring illuminating interviews
with Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, Howard Zinn and many others, THE CORPORATION
charts the spectacular rise of an institution aimed at achieving specific
economic goals as it also recounts victories against this apparently invincible
force.

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
complex and highly entertaining documentary, Mark Achbar, co-director of the
influential and inventive MANUFACTURING CONSENT: NOAM CHOMSKY AND THE MEDIA,
teams up with co-director Jennifer Abbott and writer Joel Bakan to examine the
far-reaching repercussions of the corporation's increasing preeminence."

3pm Sunday Feb 13th.
