Dark Money

Discussion to follow with director Kimberly Reed, film subject John S. Adams,
and former congressman Barney Frank

Dir. Kimberly Reed | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2018 | 98 min.

Montana has spent more than a century trying to keep its politics clean. Back in 1912, after a copper magnate tried to bribe his way into the U.S. Senate, the state prohibited corporate campaign financing. But everything changed with the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling in 2010; anonymous “dark money” flooded elections nationwide. We follow investigative journalist John Adams as he stops at nothing to get the truth out—even if it means living out of his truck—while the citizens of Big Sky Country fight against the dismantling of democracy.

MONDAY, JULY 9, 8:00 PM at the Beach Plum Inn, Chilmark
