“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
“Dark Money effectively pinpoints how the smear campaigns function in an election.” — The Hollywood Reporter
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 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 and produced by Kimberly Reed (PRODIGAL SONS) and produced by Katy Chevigny (E-TEAM).
