All The Beauty and the Bloodshed

2:55pm - Saturday, Feb 4, 2023

Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras, ALL THE BEAUTY AND THE BLOODSHED is an epic, emotional and interconnected story about internationally renowned artist and activist Nan Goldin told through her slideshows, intimate interviews, ground-breaking photography, and rare footage of her personal fight to hold the Sackler family accountable for the overdose crisis.

"Whether speaking, seething, or vaping, Goldin is a uniquely compelling heroine." (The Ringer)

"So much of this documentary is about what we cannot get back, what we were lucky enough to have when we had it, and what art preserves, accidentally and not." (Rolling Stone Magazine)

"Poitras, whose gift for suspenseful contemplation is on full display here, layers her subject’s frank memories and insights over a rolling bounty of her photographs..." (Los Angeles Times)

"As it surveys an individual narrative across a half-century of political, artistic, and cultural heartache, “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” is, in so many ways, the Great American Novel in documentary form." (TheWrap)
