Tuesday, September 18th 6PM
Downtown Klamath County Library
Join us for a screening and discussion of the documentary Dark Money at the downtown Klamath County Library on Tuesday, September 18th at 6 pm – two weeks before the program airs nationwide on PBS as part of the network’s POV documentary series.
The 2010 Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. FEC found that money spent to support (or denounce) political candidates counted as speech protected by the First Amendment, allowing corporations to fund political campaigns and election-related advertising. Dark Money follows John S. Adams, a Montana journalist working to uncover the effect of this influx of corporate money on elections and elected officials as he “follows the money” while covering a controversial trial in the state.
Dark Money, directed by Kimberly Reed, is unrated and runs for 60 minutes. The film will air nationwide on PBS on October 1st.
This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. For more information, please call 541-882-8894 or visit the Information and Reference desk. For more about the film, including a trailer, visit www.pbs.org/pov/darkmoney.
