HELMUT NEWTON: THE BAD & THE BEAUTIFUL NOW PLAYING IN THE JPT VIRTUAL SCREENING ROOM


The wildly entertaining new documentary 

on the legendary and controversial photographer,
on the occasion of his centennial

Official selection:
Tribeca Film Festival 2020


Inspired by his roots in Berlin, German photographer Helmut Newton rose to a cult status that exists today, even after his tragic death in a Los Angeles car crash in 2006. He bounced around from Singapore to Australia to Paris to Los Angeles, but Weimer Germany would become the visual hallmark and signature of his work -- the past would continue to haunt each and every image.

Through candid interviews, Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Wintour and others, including Newton's wife June, share their thoughts on Newton's life and legacy, and remain at the core of his work -- capturing provocative, unconventional and, at times, subversive images of women. His unique and striking way of depicting women still begs the controversial question -- were these women subjects or objects for Newton? The film also features home movies, archival footage, and of course still photographs to create this portrait of a controversial genius. - Tribeca Film Festival
