DARK MONEY, a political thriller, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials.
The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the U.S. 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).
"Takes a detailed look at an unexpectedly complex situation that is at the heart of political action today."
"Activist in tone, and paced like a thriller, Reed's movie painstakingly details how an election can be brusquely seized and swayed by unseen forces."
"Exposes the dangers of unbridled, anonymous political spending so expertly that it will make you fume with anger, practically quake with distress."
