Synopsis


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/produced by Kimberly Reed (PRODIGAL SONS) and produced by Katy Chevigny (E-TEAM).

— Dennis Harvey, Variety

"As heartening a political story as you are going to get these days."
— Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"All the hallmarks of a great legal thriller, [Kimberly] Reed puts flesh and bone to the arcane minutiae and forcefully argues that dark money represents the greatest modern threat to our democracy. Essential and riveting."
— John Lopez, Departures Magazine
