PRICELE$$, a new documentary, is a filmmaker’s personal journey across America to answer a burning question: why are some of our government’s most basic policies, like food and energy, so out-of-date . . . and can anything be done about it?
PRICELE$$ is a filmmaker’s personal journey across America to answer a burning question: why are some of our government’s most basic policies, like food and energy, so out-of-date . . . and can anything be done about it? Sharing the suspicion of fellow-citizens, including a class of young civics students, that campaign money is involved, the filmmakers set out on a spellbinding — and at times hilarious — ride from rural America to the halls of Congress to find out more, because democracy is a precious resource.

Interview With Director of Documentary “Priceless” Steve Cowan, Director of Habitat Media Productions
PRICELE$$ is a one-hour documentary journey from 4th of July revelry to America’s croplands; from hopeful windfarms to our nation’s capitol in search of some answers. Maybe even a solution. The colorful cast of characters will inform, move, and amuse you. You’ll be privy to personal accounts of lives upended and hear how postal rates cause global warming. You’ll learn the definition of “running clean” and discover the fate of two politicians who actually enjoyed fundraising. Even the third graders in our film know something has to change.
Do you dare witness the horrifying true story of an electoral system that turns our elected representatives into craven JUNKIES, mainlining corporate cash in a viscous cycle to feed their insatiable campaign coffers!
