A screening of ‘Dark Money,’ which was nominated for an Academy Award and featured at the Sundance Film Festival, will be held Sept. 24, followed by a talk with the star of the film, journalist John Adams.
The event, sponsored by the Department of Journalism and Media Communication and the Department of Political Science, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Clark Building, Room A-103.
The movie features Adams, a gum–shoe, detective–journalist plying his trade as he and others uncover a morass of corruption and deceit. The gripping film takes viewers to Montana — a front line in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide — and exposes the real–life impacts of the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court‘s Citizens United decision.
After the screening, Adams will join via video for a conversation with the audience, followed by a short video featuring actress Jennifer Lawrence, a board member of RepresentUs, a movement dedicated to passing powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money and fix broken elections.
Both hosting departments are part of CSU’s College of Liberal Arts.
