The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel reveals how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the sly 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.

Cutting together searing interviews with cleverly edited imagery, the film (Canadian but often focusing on the U.S.) is right up to the minute, deftly including COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter.” – Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
