The documentary Dark Money from PBS Distribution is now available to stream exclusively through Amazon’s Prime Video ahead of the election.
Dark Money is also available on digital, DVD and Blu-ray.
The documentary examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate and union 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 impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s “Citizens United” decision, uncovering the truth of how American elections are bought and sold.
The recipient of the Sundance Institute/Amazon Studios’ Producers Award, Dark Money is directed and produced by Kimberly Reed. The film was recently nominated for top documentary awards at the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards (winners announced Nov. 10) and the International Documentary Association’s IDA Awards (winners announced Dec. 8).
Dark Money was released theatrically in July and broadcast on PBS’s documentary series “POV” Oct. 1.
