IWW to host screening of The Corporation in Grand Rapids 1/20

January 12, 2011

The Grand Rapids branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) we be hosting a screening of the documentary film The Corporation.

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 screening will be on Thursday, January 20 at 6pm in the IATSE Labor Hall located at 931 Bridge St, NW in Grand Rapids. The screening is free and open to the public. There will be a discussion after the film.

    Great film! Although rather scary and depressing.
