The documentary Dark Money is available now digital and will come out on DVD Oct. 9 from PBS Distribution.
Presented in partnership with POV, the Sundance award-winning documentary, directed and produced by Kimberly Reed, uncovers the truth of how American elections are bought and sold. Dark Money examines 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 a local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. A century ago, secret money swamped Montana’s legislature, but citizens rose up to prohibit corporate campaign spending. In the wake of Citizens United — which allows unlimited, anonymous money to pour into elections nationwide — Montana is once again fighting to preserve open and honest elections.
