Directed by Oscar-nominated Amy Berg, An Open Secret is a brave documentary which takes aim at and exposes the sexual abuse of children which has been occurring within Hollywood. It is a damming film which shines a light on an alleged network that implicates several major industry figures.
Throughout we hear first-hand accounts from five young actors who have come out and admitted that they were indeed victims of the industry and suffered at the hands of managers, publicists and directors all whilst under the age of consent. Including the convicted sex offenders who owned and operated the now infamous Digital Entertainment Network (DEN).
Gabe Hoffman, the executive producer has stated that “what you see in the film is literally just the tip of the iceberg” and that “for every victim that’s in the film, there are another 5 to 10 with fact-checked, legitimate accounts who didn’t want to be identified.”
