An Open Secret finally to be screened.
Director Amy Berg made a documentary about a subject that nobody in the entertainment industry wants you to see.
You can see more about the movie at the official An Open Secret site here.
The movie had trouble finding distribution initially. Nobody in Hollywood wants this exposed. Even though everyone knows about the casting couch, people like to pretend that it’s just young starlets who are willing to sleep with a producer to get a part. Nobody wants to admit that it goes much deeper. That very young children are being abused. That young boys are being abused.
It’s important that people see there’s more to Hollywood than red carpets and award ceremonies. It’s great that someone went ahead and made a film that exposes some of the darker truths of the industry.
A concern though is whether the boys in the movie are prepared for the release. Yes, they spoke publicly, they agreed to make a movie, but are they ready for the backlash? The scrutiny? The doubters and trolls? The death threats?
I know first hand what it’s like to go through a very public accusation. I know the doubt, the threats, the victim blaming first hand. It’s hard. Harder than I could ever have imagined. Thankfully, I found a support network a couple years in, with A Minor Consideration.
We’d really like to make sure the boys in An Open Secret know that we’re all there for them. They can contact us anytime.
AMC is there for ALL kids in the industry, past or present. If you need help, if you need someone to talk to, contact AMC.
