Thought-provoking political documentary by Canadian filmmakers Jennifer Abbott and Mark Achbar.
In the mid-19th century, American corporations began to be legally recognised as individuals, a move that has given them unprecedented rights.
In collaboration with novelist Joel Bakan, the filmmakers pose the question: if a corporation was a person, what sort of person would it be?
Applying psychiatric principles and social research, they come to the conclusion that this 'person' would be a power-hungry, egocentric and highly destructive psychopath.
The film won Best Documentary World Cinema Audience Award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.
