Join us for a special preview of All the Beauty and the Bloodshed: the extraordinary story of internationally renowned artist and activist Nan Goldin, told through her slideshows, intimate interviews, ground-breaking photography and rare footage of her fight to hold the Sackler family accountable for the opioid crisis.

Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras (Citizenfour), the film interweaves Goldin’s past and present, the deeply personal and urgently political. From P.A.I.N.’s actions at renowned art institutions to Goldin’s photography of her friends and peers through her epic The Ballad of Sexual Dependency and her legendary 1989, NEA-censored AIDS exhibition Witnesses: Against Our Vanishing.

Following the preview, director Laura Poitras will be joining us for a Q&A.

Ferociously powerful. ★★★★★
