PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’s quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where Politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury — through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation.  Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy’s High Stakes is the layman’s guidebook to taking back our democracy.

Jonathan Tong of WAmend – http://www.wamend.org/ – will attend the screening and update us on the current effort in Washington to get money out of politics.
