After screening at over a dozen film festivals and getting rave reviews from publications like Forbes and Film Threat, “Money Machine”, a searing new documentary about the Vegas mass shooting cover-up, has acquired international distribution and is slated to be released on October 1st, the 3-year anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in American history.
On October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 concertgoers from his hotel room at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. In a matter of minutes, Paddock killed 58 people and wounded more than 400. It was the largest mass shooting in the history of the United States. Yet, just a couple of years later, Vegas seemed to have forgotten about it completely.
Needless to say, mass shootings are not good for business, and it didn’t take long for the Vegas money machine to get to work making this one disappear. In the aftermath of remarketing Las Vegas as a safe destination for tourists, many questionable practices were put into place—one of the most shocking being filing a lawsuit against the victims of this devastating tragedy. On top of that, despite the popular #VegasStrong movement and nationwide fundraising, there’s still a huge question of where all that money went. An enthralling documentary about the dark side of the Las Vegas economy, “Money Machine” exposes Sin City’s darkest secrets including its culpability in this country’s deadliest shooting.
Featuring an exclusive interview with killer Stephen Paddock’s brother Eric, this riveting new documentary feature exposes information MGM Resorts International and the Las Vegas Police Department would prefer to keep secret.
“Money Machine” will be released on global VOD via Journeyman Pictures, with the launch slated for October 1st, 2020, the 3rd anniversary of the mass shooting. Platforms include Itunes, Youtube, Amazon Prime and others.
