About the movie

In 2003, Jennifer Abbott, Mark Achbar and Joel Bakan’s documentary The Corporation examined the rise of the corporation as an entity with most of the legal rights of a person. Since then—despite a climate crisis that threatens the balance of all life on Earth—we have seen corporations grow in power and strength, rapidly changing the playing field by adapting, mutating and disguising themselves as allies of the climate movement.

These companies are more powerful than they’ve ever been, which is why directors Bakan and Abbott decided to release the aptly named follow-up The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel. This recently released documentary takes a look at how corporate social responsibility campaigns often block real climate action and highlights some of the inspiring movements for change that keep us hopeful.
