Digging Through the Darkness is a heady documentary about musical prodigies The 5 Browns, who were on top of the world after three #1 records and appearances on 60 Minutes and The Oprah Winfrey Show. But beneath the surface of their success loomed a terrible secret that their father and now manager was responsible for -- years of sexual abuse against the three sisters. Long before the #MeToo movement, and fully aware that their story would devastate their family and the group, the young women bravely spoke out.
Digging Through the Darkness follows the siblings’ search for healing through the transformative power of music.
Doors open at 7:00 with the film going on at 7:30. Filmmaker and South Orange resident Ben Niles and group member Desirae Brown will be in attendance for a Q & A to follow the film.
