The opiate crisis in the United States continues to claim victims. For passionate photographer and activist Nan Goldin, it is clear who is responsible for the - often fatal - addiction of millions of Americans to painkillers: the infamous Sackler family. She founded the organization PAIN and organizes protests and actions at museums to which the Sackler family grants donations and support. In this way, Goldin hopes to uncover the hidden truth behind the Sackler name. All the Beauty and the Bloodshed won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar.
