The Corporation by Mark Achbar( Visual )

28 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Corporation delves into the mindset and character of corporate America. This documentary comes to us from Mark Achbar (Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media), Jennifer Abbott (A Cow at My Table), and Joel Bakan, whose book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power serves as the basis for the film. Through interviews with left-wing staples such as Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore; company CEOs from Pfizer, Goodyear, and Royal Dutch Shell; activists and whistleblowers; and highlighting specific cases of corporate deception, the three-hour mini-series paints a somewhat unflattering picture of multinationals. In the first program, The Pathology of Commerce, filmmakers examine the pathological self-interest of the modern corporation. Planet Inc. looks at the scope of commerce and the sophisticated, even covert, techniques marketers use to get their brands into our homes. The final program, Reckoning, examines how corporations cut deals with any style of government - from Nazi Germany to despotic states today - that allow or even encourage sweatshops, as long as sales go up
Manufactured Landscapes by Edward Burtynsky( Visual )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Burtynsky has gained international recognition for his photographs of what he calls manufactured landscapes. He argues that we have reached past the point now where we are at the mercy of the environment--our planet now lives and dies at our mercy. This is not meant to be a frightening concept, though many of the images are sobering, in this chilling but ultimately beautiful documentary on what industrialization is doing to man and the world as we know it. Or used to know it. Manufactured Landscapes tells the story of these images, and how Burtynsky came to be so fascinated with the concept of human design. It follows a recent photo shoot in China, photographing the effects of that country's massive industrial revolution, showing us a glimpse of what it's like behind the scenes for a famous photographer in action
