PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy's High Stakes

Documentarian John Ennis goes on a quest to find a way out of the "pay to play" system, in which politicians reward their donors with even larger sums of money, pulled from the public treasuries through contracts, tax cuts and deregulation. From the high drama of the Ohio campaign trail to the underworld of LA street art to the secret history of the game Monopoly, Ennis' humorous odyssey reveals the high cost of doing democracy. Peace activist and "walking granny" Sally-Alice Thompson will be on hand to introduce the movie and lead a post-screening discussion. 86 minutes
