    This unusual video examines the ways in which corporate representations have shaped Americans' ideas about Third World countries. It interweaves excerpts from corporate sponsored films such as Sumatra, Island of Yesterday (Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co.) and Assignment Venezuela (Creole Petroleum Corp.) with literary texts from Joseph Conrad to Pablo Neruda, poetry, and dramatic segments featuring performance artists, to show how such public relations media function in the creation of cultural mythology.
