Pricele$$ screens in Laconia, NH

Pricele$$ the Documentary will be shown tomorrow night in Laconia, NH, sponsored by the Belknap County Democrats, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, Steve Cowan. Admission is free.

The film will be shown starting at 6:30 p.m., at the Multi-Purpose Room, Laconia Middle School, 150 McGrath Street.

Pricele$$ examines the forces that control and drive industry in the United States, campaign financing. Pricele$$ asks the question, "How is big money corrupting politics in Washington and how can we fix it?"

A Concord based non-profit, Americans for Campaign Reform, is working hard on these very questions, providing voters with the information they need to make informed decisions. Pricele$$ attempts to tackle two major issues in our economy, food and energy. The film shows us that in order to be an elected official, campaigners need to seek funding from "large donors such as the oil & gas industry, agrichemical companies, health insurers, and Wall Street...you know...the type of companies they're supposed to be regulating."

The film is being shown as part of The Green Living Series.
