Follow the epic story of Nan Goldin, told through her groundbreaking photography and footage, as she fights to hold the Sackler family accountable for the opioid crisis.

A devastating work of shocking intelligence and still greater emotional power.

Sophie Monks Kaufman (Indiewire)

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 opioid crisis.

The film interweaves Goldin’s past and present, the deeply personal and urgently political, from P.A.I.N.’s (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now) 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, Witness: Against Our Vanishing.
