Participant Media has a new movie coming out early next year called “Casino Jack: The United States of Money.” (Their announcement is good timing given yesterday’s sentencing of Jack Abramoff.) This is the company behind such films as “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Syriana”, “Good Night, And Good Luck” and “Charlie Wilson’s War.” (This film is going to be a good one -it’s directed by by Alex Gibney (“Enron: Smartest Guys in the Room,” Oscar-winning “Taxi to the Darkside.”)
All of Participant’s films are accompanied by campaigns to raise awareness about an issue, and more importantly, to shine a light on the organizations and tools offering solutions. The “Casino Jack” campaign will focus on how citizens can become an active part of understanding the money trail in politics and work to reduce the influence money has on government.
They just launched a site, where you can tell them what you think should be included in the campaign. There are only 5 questions – multiple choice, with an option to add as many comments as you’d like. This your chance to have input in the social action campaign from its inception.
I know they’re really interested in what you have to say so please considering taking a few minutes to fill it out.
