Pay 2 Play Democracy’s High Stakes is an entertaining documentary about the corrupting influence of money in politics featuring Robert Reich, Lawrence Lessig, Marianne Williamson, Noam Chomsky, Van Jones and more.  The film explores the status quo and offers a set of simple solutions we can all work on together to take back our democracy.

How can we get out from under the system of pay-to-play politics, where politicians reward their donors with public money and special favors?

In Pay 2 Play, filmmaker John Ennis examines how corporations have taken over our democracy as he follows outsiders using their voice to change the game in American politics. He ventures through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of America’s favorite game, and explores the underworld of Los Angeles street art in a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make.
