Director Jennifer Abbott and Mark Achbar’s “The Corporation” (2003) is a comprehensively researched film exploring the history of corporations, how they operate and how they’ve come to attain so much political power. Related topics include the 1933 attempted corporate coup exposed by General Smedley Butler, the Fox news coverup of the dangers of Monsanto’s Bovine Growth Hormone, and the mass protests in Bolivia sparked by the attempted privatization of their water supply in 2000.
