Toute la beauté et le sang versé, Laura Poitras



Nan Goldin has revolutionized the art of photography and reinvented the notion of gender and definitions of normalcy.

This artist and activist fights against the Sackler family, responsible for the opiate crisis in the United States and around the world.


Always fight

Her name makes the Sacklers cringe.

Nan Goldin, one of the world’s greatest living photographers, has been the subject of a documentary, which focuses on both her work and her commitment, inseparable from her images.

“All the beauty and bloodshed” is an excerpt from the diary of Nan Goldin’s sister, Barbara, who committed suicide at the age of 15. This tragedy will forever mark the little sister that Nan was. 

Barbara, a bit of a rebel, was placed in a psychiatric hospital at the age of seven and spent her years running away.

Her parents placed Nan Goldin in a foster home at the age of twelve. She will not stop running away, until she finds a refuge among the hippies.

For a long time she lived on the streets, alongside prostitutes and drug addicts, photographing every minute of her life, her loved ones, and the marginalized people that we don’t see or don’t want to see.

She completely reveals herself on all subjects: photography, sex, friends, AIDS and the fight of her life, the one against the Sackler family, responsible for 500,000 deaths through the creation and commercial distribution of its opioid painkiller, oxycontin. 

Prescribed to millions of Americans with the approval of corrupt officials of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Oxcyontin was the subject of a mini-series on Disney +, Dopesick, with Michael Keaton. He plays a doctor who prescribes OxyContin, a painkiller marketed by the private laboratory Purdue Pharma of the Sackler family. 

This drug, which also made Nan Goldin addicted, almost caused her death and led to the death of 50,000 people per year by overdose during ten years. In the United States the drug was massively prescribed, creating an epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths that devastated parts of the country.

Laura Poitras films the determination of the photographer in her fight against the Sackler family, the originators of these drugs via their laboratory Purdue pharma (also a trader of Valium) and patrons of the largest museums in the world such as the Met, the Guggenheim, the National Portrait Gallery, The Tate, The Guggenheim, the Louvre …

One of her slogans is “Sackler lies people die”.

Her voice and fame are at the service of the bereaved parents and former addicts of this drug against this family, and despite threats, (she and her team were subject to surveillance by detectives employed by the family). 

Nan Goldin is also the first artist who curated an exhibition on AIDS victims that revolutionized the country.

The P.A.I.N. association that she created to fight against the Sackler family also raises funds to allow the analysis of drugs before they are consumed. 

Today it’s Fentanyl that’s killing.

The words and evils that Nan Goldin fights are: conformism, denial, stigmatization, secrets.

This moving documentary is the story of a woman, of a broken family, but also of a time when the fight must never cease to bring out the truth.

After the documentary on Edward Snowden (Citizenfour) who revealed information about the American government’s surveillance programs, Laura Poitras continues her journey towards the truth, and dives into Nan Goldin’s torments, but also reveals her victories.

A must-see.

In theaters now.



Minx, Ellen Rapoport



Los Angeles, 1970s. A young feminist activist joins forces with a shady publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women.

Is there an erotic magazine for women today?

She looks like Chantal Goya and has the determination of Gloria Steinem.

Her dream? To create a feminist magazine that will overthrow the patriarchy.

But it’s the 70’s and if it’s still not easy today, it was even less so back then.

Except that…Except that a publisher of women’s erotic magazines will love her idea and help her to create a revolutionary magazine.

Ophelia Lucy Lovibond plays Joyce, an intellectual and sure of her idea who struggles throughout the episodes between her dreams of encyclopedic articles vs. a magazine.

She faces the contradiction of being published by Doug, played by Jake Johnson, also a pornographic magazine editor. In this world of uneducated outsiders, will she be able to communicate her desire to help women?

Both very funny and very fine, Minx takes us to the heart of a magazine where in a joyful mess respect, tolerance and open-mindedness reign.

Some episodes are directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg who directed Unpregnant, a film on abortion and worked under the Obama administration.
