“Pay 2 Play,” a documentary film about the democracy movement, will be shown at the Camas Public Library Saturday, Oct. 25, at 2 p.m. A discussion will follow.

According to a press release, “Pay to Play” follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under what he describes as the “Pay 2 Play System,” where politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury — through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation.

“Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make.”

The film features Robert Reich, Lawrence Lessig, John Nichols, Noam Chomsky, Jerry Springer, Van Jones, Marianne Williamson, Jack Abramoff, Thom Hartmann, Bob Edgar, Rashad Robinson, Robert Weissman and Kathay Feng.

The Camas library is located at 425 N.E. Fourth Ave.
