In NYFF60 Centerpiece selection All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, documentarian Laura Poitras takes as her subject Nan Goldin. An era-defining artist who rose from the New York “No Wave” underground to become one of the great photographers of the late 20th century, Goldin put herself at the forefront of the battle against the Sackler family and their pharmaceutical empire, both as an activist at art institutions around the world that had accepted millions from the Sacklers and as an advocate for the destigmatization of drug addiction. Join us for an intimate, career-spanning conversation with Goldin—who also designed the posters for the 60th New York Film Festival—about the personal and political roots of her creative practice, the radical humanism of her photography, and the defiant intertwinings of her art and activism.

Laura Poitras’s All the Beauty and the Bloodshed is the Centerpiece selection of this year’s New York Film Festival. Click here to learn more about the film.
