To get elected anymore in this country you need to be a millionaire or have access to a great deal of money — but where is that money coming from?
Following the money is what filmmaker Kimberly Reed’s “Dark Money” tries to do during a recent election in Montana. The film is in this year’s U.S. Documentary competition at the Sundance Film Festival.

The documentary reveals how this practice is devastating elections throughout the country.
