Laura Poitras’ ‘All The Beauty and the Bloodshed’ Chosen as Centerpiece Selection at New York Film Festival

Laura Poitras’ “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” has been announced as the Centerpiece selection for the 60th New York Film Festival in October.

The “Citizenfour” director’s new documentary centers around famed New York photographer Nan Goldin, who became the public face of opposition to the Sackler family and their phamaceutical dynasty. After battling her own opioid addiction, Goldin took art institutions bearing the Sackler name to task, and fought for the destigmatization of drug addiction. With Goldin as narrator, the film dives into her difficult upbringing and her community’s fight against AIDS in the 1980s, among other aspects of her life story.

Film at Lincoln Center also announced today that Goldin will design the festival’s official poster, to be revealed at a later date.

“I am thrilled to be part of the New York Film Festival with Nan,” said Poitras. “Her art and activism are deeply rooted in this city. It is an honor to return to the festival, and to do this with Nan is so meaningful.”

“One fearless and empathetic gaze meets another in this remarkable portrait of Nan Goldin by Laura
Poitras,” said Dennis Lim, the artistic director of New York Film Festival. “We are delighted to welcome Poitras back to the festival with All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, an absorbing account of Goldin’s work and activism that shows us how much they both matter.”

Marni’s Francesco Risso is taking the brand ‘on tour’ starting with New York Fashion Week

This article is part of our Vogue Business Membership package. To enjoy unlimited access to Member-only reporting and insights, our NFT Tracker and TikTok Trend Tracker, weekly Technology and Sustainability Edits and exclusive event invitations, sign up for Membership here.

Marni will show at New York Fashion Week this September, as part of a multi-season odyssey that will see the Milan house at different fashion weeks across the world.

Creative director Francesco Risso today revealed the surprise move is “about getting closer to our audience” in an exclusive interview with Vogue Business. “We have a very international crowd who come to us in Milan, and we can’t complain about that at all. But still there are a lot of people — people I am very focused on, Marni lovers who are deeply engaged with what we do — who miss out. So, we are going on tour.”

Its first stop will see Risso’s Spring Summer 2023 collection revealed at 9pm on 10 September, at a New York location — the designer declined to divulge the exact whereabouts for now: “We want to keep the surprise for a while longer.” Risso added that the show would be accompanied by a series of events and amplifications held in Marni’s three boutiques across the city. He said: “Friends of the house who might not necessarily be involved in the show, artists, will inhabit the spaces to represent the Italian-ness. I think it’s going to be very interesting to be there.”

Following news of Fendi’s one-off show to take place the previous day, Marni’s announcement strengthens what will be a refreshingly Italian-accented edition of the US’s leading fashion showcase. In an emailed comment, the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s CEO Steven Kolb said the organisation “is delighted to welcome Marni to New
