Join fellow film buffs to watch the documentary movie DARK MONEY. Christina Farnsworth will lead a discussion following the showing so you can share your views with other film enthusiasts.

Told through the lives of real people, the political thriller Dark Money examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of a flood of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana, frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide (having passed laws a century ago in reaction to corrupt money from copper mines swamping the state legislature), to follow intrepid local journalist John S. Adams, persistently working to expose the sinister real-life impacts of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, Dark Money uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are being bought and sold. It's a stirring David vs. Goliath story serving as a blueprint and call to action for what could be done nationwide. Winner of the Sundance Institute/Amazon Studios Producer Award at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, this timely documentary is directed and produced by Kimberly Reed (Prodigal Sons)and produced by Katy Chevigny (E-Team).
