“Kimberly Reed’s taut documentary is also damning, clear-eyed, and as gripping as any John Grisham thriller.” — Entertainment Weekly
“Dark Money’ should set off warning bells. . . “ — Christian Science Monitor
“Dark Money” would be a fun, Hollywood political thriller — if it weren’t true.
The documentary, nominated for awards at eight film festivals, including Sundance,, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections.
“Dark Money” takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide. The cameras 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”).
