Watch the Trailer for Amy Berg's Controversial Doc 'An Open Secret'
"We're absolutely talking about the tip of the iceberg." Ahead of its premiere in the Cannes Market, the first trailer for Amy Berg's documentary An Open Secret has debuted, profiling the controversy about sexual assault allegations involving children working in Hollywood. This is the doc that we've been hearing about ever since the Bryan Singer story made headlines, and he's one of the cases discussed. Amy Berg is a very talented filmmaker (West of Memphis about the West Memphis Three riled me up) and I am very curious to see what she has uncovered in this. The trailer is a nice tease, with hints at all the shocking details included within, so give it a look and check it out in theaters. "The Film That Hollywood Doesn’t Want You to See"!
Here's the first trailer for Amy Berg's documentary An Open Secret, direct from YouTube:
An Open Secret, directed by Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg (of West of Memphis, Deliver Us From Evil previously), is a shocking look at the lives of these children and at the system that essentially funnels them towards sexual predators without any oversight or regard for their safety. The several children the film follows, now all young adults, were exposed to some of the biggest names in the film industry, which has created a groundswell of controversy. The doc first premiered at the DOC NYC festival last year, and will be showing in the Cannes Market this month for buyers around the world. From their marketing: "Connect with #AnOpenSecret and help expose Hollywood's dirtiest secret." Rocky Mountain Pictures & Vesuvio Ent. will release An Open Secret in theaters later this year, but no exact date is set. Visit the film's official site.

Does this documentary only cover the male perspective? Or is this much more rare among young female up and comers in Hollywood. I find it hard to believe that young female child stars would be lucky enough to avoid this kind of treatment.

Often on this site, when an actor or director is outed as a beast, I've read numerous times people say that they like their films and not to mix up the personal life of the said child molester and their acting/director role. That's a problem. Remember Polanski drugged and sodomised that young girl at Jack Nicholsons house? Aw but he makes good films, so it's totally fine.
