Latest Episode: Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott on calling corporate social responsibility’s bluff in 'The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel'

In this episode, Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott join us for a conversation to dissect their approach to The Corporation follow-up.

After Mark Akbar and Jennifer Abbott transformed VIFF audiences in 2003 with The Corporation, Bakan and Abbott returned to the 2020 Festival with The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel.

Refreshing the corporation’s evolution as a legal "person" to a virtue signalling chameleon, the second film is a comprehensive exploration of power and hypocrisy in the face of a growing resistance.

Speaking to NDP Candidate and lawyer Niki Sharma, Bakan and Abbott take the conversation beyond the screen, expanding on why, seventeen years on, the urgency for an update was essential.
