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 political outsiders. 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.
“PAY 2 PLAY lays out a compelling case against corporate personhood and money as free speech…Researched, sourced and interviewed exhaustively." — LA Times
“Ennis is an optimist at heart, and his belief that one person can make a difference is infectious…The difference with this movie is that it actually means to inspire hope.”— Washington Post
