"When you think of the profit off of people's pain, you can only be furious." HBO has unveiled their own official trailer for All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, the award-winning documentary film from Laura Poitras. It first premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival, winning the Golden Lion prize, then it opened in theaters last the fall thanks to Neon. After the theatrical run it was nominated for Best Documentary at the Oscars this year, and will be on HBO in March just after the ceremony. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras, All the Beauty and the Bloodshed is an epic, emotional and interconnected story about internationally renowned artist and activist Nan Goldin – as told through her slideshows, intimate interviews, ground-breaking photography, and rare footage of her personal fight to hold the Sackler family accountable for the overdose crisis. Half of the film is about activism and her protests against the detestable Sackler family that profited on opioid crisis in the US. It's a very powerful documentary that has justifiably won tons of awards & accolades for months already. If you haven't seen this yet, give it a look on HBO soon.
