Laura Poitras’ latest has been named Best Documentary/Non-Fiction Film by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA). The documentary about artist and activist Nan Goldin’s attempts to hold the Sackler family accountable for the opioid epidemic world premiered at Venice Film Festival, where it took home the fest’s top prize, the Golden Lion.
Since then, the film’s been racking up awards and noms, receiving love from the Indie Spirit Awards, IDA Documentary Awards, and Cinema Eye Honors, among others. More recently, “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” landed honors from Boston Society of Film Critics and New York Film Critics Online.
