    All the Beauty and the BloodShed Wins Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion

    Laura Poitras's documentary takes the top award in Venice, searingly exploring the ideas of community, repression, art, and politics. Neon has set the US theatrical release for late October. Catch a sneak peek now.


    Official Plot Summary:
    This emotional and thought-provoking documentary follows the life and career of artist Nan Goldin and the downfall of the Sackler family, the pharmaceutical dynasty greatly responsible for the opioid epidemic's unfathomable death toll. The film examines Goldin's efforts to hold Purdue Pharma, owned by the Sackler family, accountable. Goldin, a well known photographer whose work often documented the LGBT subcultures and the HIV/AIDS crisis, founded the advocacy group P.A.I.N. (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now) in 2017 after her own addiction to Oxycontin.

    In the Media:

    "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." -The Wrap, Ben Croll

    "As portraiture, 'All the Beauty and the Bloodshed' accomplishes the goal of any documentary worthy of its genre by shining an insightful light onto what informs an artist’s vision.Slant Magazine, Kenji Fujishima
