NEON Acquires the Rights to Distribute ‘All the Beauty and the Bloodshed’

NEON has acquired the rights to distribute Academy Award winner Laura PoitrasAll the Beauty and the Bloodshed. The film will compete for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival this fall, a rare opportunity given to non-fiction titles.

Through ground-breaking photography, intimate interviews and rare footage, the movie tells the story of how renowned artist and activist Nan Goldin fought to hold the Sackler family accountable for the overdose crisis. Goldin’s personal life will be explored in the film, as well as her career as a photographer, including her impactful NEA-censored AIDS exhibition, Witnesses: Against Our Vanishing.

This would mark the third collaboration between NEON and Poitras, after releasing her previous films Risk (2016) and The Year of the Everlasting Storm (2018). Participant served as the production company for the project, which will also be screened at the 2022 New York Film Festival later this year.

Regarding the film, Poitras stated: “Nan’s art and vision has inspired my work for years, and has influenced generations of filmmakers. When we began working together, it was essential to us that the film see a theatrical release. There are no better partners than NEON and Participant and I am honored to collaborate with them on this film”.
