Come on out to Compact Cinema at 16 West Marketplace in downtown Roanoke for a free screening of the film PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy's High Stakes, sponsored by Represent Us.
About PAY 2 PLAY: Driven to make the world better for his newborn daughter, filmmaker John Ennis looks for ways out of our system of pay-to-play politics. 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.
PAY 2 PLAY features Robert Reich, Lawrence Lessig, John Nichols, Noam Chomsky, Jerry Springer, Van Jones, Marianne Williamson, Jack Abramoff, Thom Hartmann, Bob Edgar and more…
