PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’ 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.
Featuring Robert Reich, Noam Chomsky, Lawrence Lessig, Van Jones and many others in a look at the corrupting relationship between big money and politics. Following the film, stick around for an open discussion and learn how we can kick big money out of politics and put voters back in charge!
