Dir. Laura Poitras. 2022, 122 mins. DCP. 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. Directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras, the film interweaves Goldin’s past and present, the deeply personal and urgently political, from the actions of P.A.I.N. (a group Goldin founded to shame museums into rejecting Sackler money, destigmatize addiction, and promote harm reduction) at renowned art institutions to Goldin’s photography of her friends and peers. Goldin captures her friendships with beauty and raw tenderness. These friendships, and the legacy of her sister Barbara, anchor all of Goldin’s art.
