Trailer for Pay 2 Play opening Friday at the Angelika Popup by Union Market

From an email:

“Pay 2 Play (opening in DC Sept 12 and in cities nationwide in October and November) is part political comedy and part expose. Director John Ennis compares American elections and politics to the board gane Monopoly, showing how money in politics usually gets in the way of meaningful change. As he covers the outlandish Coingate scandal in Ohio, Ennis grasps that the primary function of pay-to-play politics is to repay the donor with public money—way, way more money than donors put in.

Pay 2 Play features everyone from Robert Reich to Jack Abramoff talking about greed, corruption, gerrymandering, SuperPacs, Citizens United, and the cattywampus reality of politics in America today. Also featured in the film are John Nichols, Lawrence Lessig, Noam Chomsky, Jerry Springer, Van Jones, Marianne Williamson, Thom Hartmann, Marge Baker, Bob Edgar, Mark Crispin Miller, Rashad Robinson, Brad Friedman, Lee Fang, and Kathay Feng

In DC, Pay 2 Play opens September 12 at Angelika Popup. Immediately after the Friday night 7:30 screening there’ll be a Q and A with Aliya Rahman from Code For Progress, Lauren Windsor from American Family Voices and The Undercurrent and Producer Holly Mosher..”
