The Daily Buzz at Cannes: Episode 7, 'An Open Secret'

Daily Buzz Co-Host John Wildman speaks with An Open Secret subject, Evan Henzi and Producer, Matthew Valentinas at the post-screening reception on Bagatelle Beach at the Grand Hotel Plage 45 located on the Croisette during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. An Open Secret, directed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Amy Berg (West of Memphis, Deliver Us From Evil, Prophet's Prey) premiered at the 2015 Cannes Market. Rumored to be Hollywood's "sex abuse documentary," the film has been getting a lot of attention as "the movie Hollywood doesn't want you to see," because it's delves into child sexual abuse and pedophilia. It's a shocking look at the lives of several young people in the entertainment industry and the system that essentially funneled them towards sexual predators without any oversight or regard for their safety.
