The winner of the Golden Lion at this year's Venice film festival is a powerful portrait of renowned American photographer and activist Nan Goldin, famous for her intimate portrayals of LGBTQ+ communities, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the opioid epidemic.
Knowing first-hand the devastation of addiction, Goldin targeted the billionaire Sackler family – pharma company owners and funders of prestigious museums and galleries around the world – resulting in a seismic shift in the art establishment.
