Mark Achbar recently released the Sundance award winning documentary “The Corporation” via BitTorrent for free. The synopsis:
THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Footage from pop culture, advertising, TV news, and corporate propaganda, illuminates the corporation’s grip on our lives. Taking its legal status as a “person” to its logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” Provoking, witty, sweepingly informative, The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics – including Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.
I’m highly intrigued and am downloading it now. There is a DVD version available of course, which features 2 discs and over 8 hours of video, so if you like the torrent version, the DVD will probably be well worth picking up. You’re also encouraged to donate if you enjoy the download.
