Description
THE CORPORATION
Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott • 145 minutes

Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, The Corporation explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation is transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. Taking its status as a legal "person" to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist's couch to ask "What kind of person is it?" The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics - including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore - plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.


THE STORY OF CITIZENS UNITED V. FEC
Annie Leonard • 9 minutes

The Story of Citizens United v. FEC explores the history of the American corporation and corporate political spending, the appropriate roles of citizens and for-profit corporations in a democracy and the toxic impact the Citizens United decision is already having on our political process. It ends with a call to amend the U.S. constitution to confirm that people—not corporations—make the decisions in a democracy.

OVERCOMING THE ODDS
Kelly Anderson and Tami Gold • 18 minutes

Overcoming the Odds tells the dramatic story of how countries of the global south, non-governmental organizations, and activists challenged the tobacco industry--and won. The filmmakers traveled with Corporate Accountability International to the United Nations in Geneva to record the adoption of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), the first global health and corporate accountability treaty. As a leader pushing for a strong treaty, Corporate Accountability International worked closely with the World Health Organization, government negotiators, public interest organizations including members of the Network for Accountability of Tobacco Transnationals (NATT), and activists from around the world in the campaign to secure passage of the treaty.
