Story of Citizens United v FEC

The Story of Citizens United v. FEC explores the inordinate power that corporations exercise in our democracy. The movie explores the history of the American corporation and corporate political spending, the appropriate roles of citizens and for-profit corporations in a democracy and the toxic impact the Citizens United Supreme Court decision is having on our political process. It ends with a call to amend the U.S. Constitution to confirm that people—not corporations—make the decisions in a democracy.


The Story of Citizens United v. FEC was co-created and released by The Story of Stuff Project and Public Citizen. Our distribution partners included People for the American Way, Free Speech for People and Move To Amend, among many others. The movie was produced by Free Range Studios.
