An Open Secret is a 2017 documentary about the rampant abuse of young boys at the hands of “important men” in Hollywood. It is now available online for a limited time for free . Make sure you watch this.
In an Open Secret, you’ll learn how high-powered Hollywood men groom parents and their children into trusting, up until the point that they can get close enough to exploit them. The slow drawn-out process is fueled by consistent manipulation and the lure of the Hollywood lifestyle which rips children away from their parents and into the hands of perverted old men.
Producer Gabe Hoffman made An Open Secret available online on Vimeo for a limited time “to commemorate serial predator Harvey Weinstein finally being exposed”. Hoffman stated:
“Harvey Weinstein, by the way, is not the only one who has used confidentiality settlements. That’s why more of Hollywood’s behavior hasn’t been exposed. This is the tip of the iceberg”
