Documentary Short: Luke Meyer’s ‘Unlocking the Truth’

Filmed for The Avante Guard Diaries, Darkon co-director Luke Meyer’s Unlocking the Truth looks at twelve year old Malcolm Brickhouse and eleven year old Jarad Dawkins’ heavy metal band of the same name. When they’re not planning make believe world tours in their basement, they’re performing around the streets of New York City and pontificating on the creative and emotional release that heavy metal has afforded them.

These kids seem to be getting a lot of attention lately, including an appearance on America’s Got Talent. Meyer’s short doc is a succinct and inspirational look at one of the heaviest preteen metal bands in the world.
