A documentary that takes on qualities of a political thriller, this incisive film examines one of the greatest threats to American democracy: the influence of “anonymous” and untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. When the Supreme Court announced its Citizen United decision in 2010, the only state to fight back was Montana, which had on its books a 100-year-old law barring corporate money from elections. As a result, Montana became the first major target of dark money. However, the state was also prepared to fight back on a grassroots level, with citizen outrage crossing the aisle between Democrats and Republicans. It’s a fascinating story, clearly recounted in this important film. Director: Kimberly Reed. (US 2018) 98 min.
