The 2012 Presidential election was the most costly ever in U.S. history. More than $6 billion have been spent by the Campaigns and independent groups to get their candidate elected.

MONEYOCRACY is 90 minutes feature documentary. It analyses the major impact of the 2010 Citizens United vs. F.E.C ruling on the U.S democracy. The film focuses on the rise of Super PACs and their affiliated secret organizations – the 501c4s – and documents how these organizations influence the political debate and American voters during the 2012 presidential campaign and beyond through political advertising.
ROOM 501C4 is an immersing and educative experience crafted around an interactive documentary (i-doc). In this i-doc, YOU – the “spectactor” – play a fictional character recruited by a secret organization who wants to support a candidate running for the Presidential election. Moving forward into the experience, you’ll have to decide how to market a fictional presidential candidate called Bill O’Maney and how to finance his campaign.
GOOD NIGHT & GOOD LUCK
