Dark Money 9:35pm Friday August 23
Dark Money, penned by the award-winning Levi David Addai, follows a young British boy riding the wave of success for his role in a Hollywood blockbuster, when it soon becomes apparent he’s suffered abuse on set by the renowned producer. On discovering the devastating news, his parents accept a substantial pay-off to keep silent rather than press charges. Not wanting to hurt their family further from publicity hell, they think this will allow them all to move on. They were wrong. Whilst the pay-off outwardly transforms their lifestyle, the hurt and betrayal cannot be erased and the family begins to crack. Dark Money confronts the conflict between the price of silence and a parent’s responsibility to their son. The film studio’s responsibility to its crew and a young boy who put his trust in them. And ultimately if justice can play a role.
