PAY 2 PLAY: DEMOCRACY'S HIGH STAKES

Presented by New York For Democracy

PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis' quest to find a way out from under 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. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy's High Stakes is the layman's guidebook to taking back our democracy.

The film will be followed by a panel discusion

But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More

ALBANY - It's been more than 20 years since singer-songwriter Syd Straw graced an Albany stage, but those shows at the now long-defunct QE2 still burn brightly in the memories of more than a few who were there back then. Read More
