The New Corporation – Virtual UK Edition!
As part of the #1000 Screenings movement and following our sold-out “Live In London” events, we’re hosting this virtual preview screening of The New Corporation for UK audiences for the first time! From June 25 – July 17 you can view the film online: Tickets are a sliding scale from £5. Proceeds support event costs for our recent grassroots events in London as well as the filmmakers’ impact campaign.
“The New Corporation (the unfortunately necessary sequel to the 2004 hit The Corporation) is a timely film that has had a hard time reaching people, not only because of COVID but Twitter also censored our trailer!! The film reveals how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the rebranding of corporations as socially conscious entities. From gatherings of corporate elites in Davos, to climate change and spiralling 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.
Watch the contentious trailer and see what you think. Read the CIGI article about the case or visit our website.
