PBS Distribution has released the first trailer for Dark Money.  The film, directed by transgender director Kimberly Reed, first premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

During the 2018 Montclair Film Festival, the thrilling political documentary took home the David Carr Award for Truth in Non-Fiction Filmmaking.


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).
