The award-winning documentary film “Dark Money,” which features the journalism of John S. Adams and chronicles the founding of Montana Free Press, is now available to stream exclusively through Amazon.com’s Prime Video.

The film was recently nominated for top documentary awards at the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards (winners announced Nov. 10) and the International Documentary Association’s prestigious IDA Awards (winners announced Dec. 8).

“I cannot tell you what an honor it is to be a part of a documentary nominated alongside films that feature American icons such as Fred Rogers and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Alex Honnold,” Adams said.

“Dark Money” is also available for digital download and for purchase on DVD and Blu-ray.

PBSd, the theatrical distribution arm of PBS, released the film in theaters in July to critical acclaim and rave reviews. The documentary eventually played in more than 50 cities nationwide, including film festivals and theaters across Montana. The PBS documentary series POV broadcasted the film on Oct. 1 ahead of this midterm elections.

“Dark Money,” a political thriller, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate and union money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision.

Through this gripping story, “Dark Money” uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold. This recipient of the Sundance Institute/Amazon Studios’ Producers Award is directed and produced by Kimberly Reed (“Prodigal Sons”) and produced by Katy Chevigny.
