“Dark Money, with its focus on the personal stories of how individuals are impacted by the flood of campaign money in the system, is an example of how ‘storytelling matters when you are trying to raise awareness of the issues,’ Chuck Todd (Meet the Press) said.”
—Ted Johnson, Variety
A political thriller, Dark Money examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials, according to the film’s website, www.darkmoneyfilm.com.
The film takes viewers to Montana—a front line in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, Dark Money uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold.
This Sundance award-winning documentary is directed/produced by Kimberly Reed (PRODIGAL SONS) and produced by Katy Chevigny (E-TEAM).
