The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel – Aberdeen
Film Synopsis: The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel
An urgent takedown of corporate greenwashing that pulls no punches.
The filmmakers behind 2003’s global hit “The Corporation” return after almost 20 years with their “Unfortunately Necessary Sequel”, investigating how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the sly rebranding of corporations as socially-conscious entities.
From the climate crisis to racial injustice and surging inequality, The New Corporation lays bare the disturbing realities of companies’ desperation to achieve profit at any cost.
Far from a sigh of despair, however, this punchy documentary celebrates the groundswell of movements taking to the streets in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future – providing a rallying cry for social justice, deeper democracy, and transformative solutions.
Content notes: References to violent assault, racism and attempted genocide.
Beyond the Screen
How do we counter greenwashing and questionable corporate ethics as they take over our public sphere? Join us after the film for inspiring live conversations as we celebrate opportunities for effective, collective action.
To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.
