Screening of The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel
Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 7 pm EDT
With Intro and Q&A by Filmmaker Joel Bakan
Moderated by Audrey Macklin
We are thrilled to announce that CLAIHR’s 2021 fundraiser will be a screening of The New Corporation with introduction and Q&A by filmmaker and UBC law prof, Joel Bakan, moderated by UT law prof and CLAIHR Advisory Board member, Audrey Macklin.
Professor Bakan’s 2003 film, The Corporation, examined an institution within society. The New Corporation reveals a world now fully remade in the corporation’s image, perilously close to losing democracy. It traces the devastating consequences, connecting the dots between then and now, and inspires with stories of resistance and change from around the world.
