In 2003, The Corporation shocked audiences around the world with its insight into the way powerful economic interests and a culture of greed are undermining democracy and human rights around the world. In The New Corporation writer and director Joel Bakan returns, asking: how can corporations claim to now be “good actors” while they take us to the brink of existential crisis?
However, when Bakan and his team tried to promote the film’s trailer on Twitter, they were told it was “too political,” and the Canadian Government did nothing to protect their freedom of expression. Now they’re bringing constitutional lawsuits against both Twitter and the Canadian Government.
Join us for an online screening of the film and discussion with Joel Bakan. This event is part of Freedom to Read Week and hosted by Lakehead’s Department of English, the Faculty of Law, and the University Library, in association with the Thunder Bay Public Library.
Registration is required. A link to the film and/or discussion will be provided with registration.
This event is free and open to everyone.
