A still from "The New Corporation". Two ballerinas stand fully en pointe at the base of a monument that is covered in multicoloured graffiti slogans. The graffiti primarily refers to the Black Lives Matter movement. The ballerinas wear black leotards, black tutus and ballet shoes. Both have one arm raised above in a fist and the other bent at their waist.

Film Synopsis: The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel

Director: Joel Bakan, Jennifer Abbot | Countries of production: Canada | Year: 2020 | Length: 106 min
Language: English | Age: 12+ years

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.

Booking Information

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.

 

Graphic with turquoise background with the white Take One Action logo in the top left corner. White text top-right reads 'Sliding Scale Ticketing' and white text underneath reads 'How much should I pay?; £0-2: I find it difficult to meet everyday costs; £4-6: I can meet everyday costs but sometimes find it stressful to do so; £6-8: I can meet everyday costs; £10: I can comfortably meet my everyday costs and have savings too'
