Join us Dec. 11, 2018 at 7 pm for the screening of "Dark Money" by Kimberly Reed at Dinner & Docs in Chicago!

RSVP today for just $10, watch the trailer, and learn more about the film here: https://www.chicagomediaproject.org/dinner-docs

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).

Come meet Chicago's own. Join us after the film to talk with leaders of both news startups and well-established watchdogs who are looking out for the interests of all Chicagoans.

This Dinner & Docs screening is brought to you by the gracious people at CMP, INN and WTTW.

In addition, this installment is sponsored by The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, with added support from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Lefkofsky Family Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation.
