GROW’s monthy movie night is Sunday, June 26. This month’s movie is The Best Government Money Can Buy?by veteran documentary film-maker, British-born Francis Megahy. He travels to Capitol Hill in Washington, making a journey of discovery as he tries to answer some questions which puzzle him: who provides the money? What effect does it have? How is it connected to the financing of political campaigns? And most crucial, is it in the public interest?
THE BEST GOVERNMENT MONEY CAN BUY? explores the issue through interviews with real Washington beltway insiders, key participants in the process – who often speak with surprising candor.
Sunday night, June 28, 201 North Klein St., Waunakee, in the EMS Community Room.
