You have likely heard of “The Corporation“, a TV-Ontario produced documentary which won critical acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival as one of “Canada’s Top Ten” films of 2003. The film will air again in Ontario in August 2004, and an excellent website has been developed as a resource for teachers and students.
Of note in “The Corporation” resource is an excellent annotated list of links relevant to issues of media literacy and awareness, anti-globalism, the social responsibility of corporate bodies, etc. Also, the bibliography is worth checking out, although it’s heavy into the globalization literature.
I am trying to see if the film is available in these parts (Sask) as I am quite interested in seeing how well the teacher resources complement the film.
