There’s some wonderfully-made documentaries that have garnered a lot of attention, while others you may not have heard of. Whatever the case may be, when a film is nominated for an Oscar there’s sure to be much interest! One of the documentaries nominated this year is All the Beauty and the Bloodshed.
The production has been recognized in one category, Documentary Feature Film. Joining it for a chance to win the prestigious statuette are All That Breathes, Fire of Love, A House Made of Splinters, and Navalny.
The film does not currently stream on any platform. It made its theatrical debut in November 2022 and has yet to come on streaming or even on-demand. We’re guessing it may be released online following the Oscars ceremony.
Since we can’t see it just yet, unless we head to a cinema, you might be wondering what the film is all about. After all, the production has received a very dignified nomination. What can you expect to see? We’ve got the answer for you below!
What is All the Beauty and the Bloodshed about?
All the Beauty and the Bloodshed takes us through the life and career of internationally known photographer and activist Nan Goldin with a focus on her work against the Sackler family, per the synopsis. The doc tells the artist’s story through her personal slideshows and photos, interviews, and “rare footage.”
Her main area of activism centers around Purdue Pharma, which is owned by the Sackler family, who are generally blamed for the opioid epidemic. Goldin founded advocacy group P.A.I.N, Prescription Addiction Intervention Now, to hold them accountable by getting museums and other art institutes to stop taking donations from the family.
