Post film Q&A with director Ben Niles and the 5 Browns, moderated by KUER RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

Independently produced by the award-winning filmmaker, Ben Niles (Note by Note, Some Kind of Spark), Digging Through the Darkness takes an intimate look at The 5 Browns, a group of sibling pianists with a meteoric rise to stardom only to be devastated years later by the tragic realization that all three sisters had been sexually abused by their father.

Told intimately using archival family video, interviews, rehearsals, performances, and verité footage, Niles weaves together the remarkable story of musical determination and passion mirrored by profound bravery and survival—both personally and professionally—as The 5 Browns come to terms with their broken family and work to find solace and healing in their own individual ways.
