Free admission opening night screening featuring the film's Montana debut
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16th | THE WILMA | 7:00 pm
A century ago corrupt money scarred Montana's democracy and landscape, but Montanans voted to prohibit corporate campaign contributions. Today, after the Citizens United ruling, dark money floods elections nationwide, but Montanans are standing up to stop history from repeating itself in a struggle that has the potential to change the way elections happen nationwide.
From Montana-born director Kimberly Reed, DARK MONEY spotlights the historical consequences of dark money's influence in Montana, and the public servants, journalists and citizens that stood up to oppose corporate control of politics.
Join us February 16th for our opening night event,admission free and open to the public, at The Wilma, 131 S. Higgins in Downtown Missoula. A Q&A with the filmmaker and panel discussion will follow the screening.
Opening Night at Big Sky 2018 is sponsored in part by the Montana Free Press
