All the Beauty and the Bloodshed Programme 2022

by Laura Poitras Special Screenings

"If I don't feel anything for someone, I can't photograph that person." American photographer Nan Goldin's art is characterised by a relentless directness that doesn't shy away from intimate moments or subjects, like addiction and death. When Goldin herself becomes the victim of a life-threatening drug addiction, the artist turns activist and leads protests against the Sackler pharmaceutical dynasty. The Sackler dynasty is not only partly responsible for the American opioid epidemic, but are also patrons of the arts worldwide. Academy Award winner Laura Poitras brings the captivating portrait of an exceptional woman to the big screen.
