Zach Galifianakis’ “Democracy for Sale” screens in North Carolina

A new documentary by Zach Galifianakis, called “Democracy for Sale,” digs into how North Carolina — perhaps more than any other state in the Union — has been transformed by the new and growing tidal wave of political spending. Galifianakis, a Tarheel native and the comic star of “The Hangover” movies, has traveled back to his home state to examine how North Carolina has become a case study for how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy.

Watch the movies at one of numerous screenings around the state!

In “Democracy for Sale,” Galifianakis investigates allegations that the current state government was put in power by moneyed interests and has carried out a program that only benefits its backers, a program that to date has included: cuts to education, healthcare spending and environmental protection; lowering of taxes for corporations and the wealthy; and the passage of laws designed to restrict voter rights.
