Bohemia meets Activism in this extraordinary documentary, 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 that is plaguing the USA.

A life and lifestyle unimaginable to the majority of us, Nan Goldin’s story is utterly compelling.

Profoundly engrossing cinematic experience of human resilience. Capturing the form of storytelling through art and the strength that comes to power through art, this larger-than-life portrait of Nan Goldin is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

If All the Beauty and the Bloodshed doesn't win Best Doc, I'll scream the world down.

Stellar. Rambunctious. Profound. Life-affirming.
