Woman With a Movie Camera Preview: ALL THE BEAUTY AND THE BLOODSHED d. Laura Poitras, 2022 at BFI Southbank (14 JAN 18:10).

“Laura Poitras (Citizenfour) examines the life and career of legendary photographer and activist Nan Goldin, and her efforts to hold Purdue Pharma, owned by the Sackler family, accountable for the opioid crisis. It is an powerful and intimate portrait, weaving together Goldin’s art and personal archives with interviews and protest footage. An inspiring call to arms. This Venice Golden Lion winner is one of the best documentaries of the year.”
