Screening // Helmut Newton: The Bad and the Beautiful

10 June @ 20:30

DKK90

Screening // 20:30

This documentary film about one of history’s most significant photographers, German-Australian Helmut Newton (1920-2004), takes us on a fascinating journey into the artist’s works and working methods. Newton is particularly known for his photographs of naked women.

The film premiered on the centenary of his birth and is particularly notable for its updated gender perspective:

“‘The Bad and the Beautiful’ is less about Newton himself and more about how his work made the women he photographed feel,” wrote IndieWire.

“That interview-heavy structure gives voice to the models whom we recognize from Newton’s photos—Grace Jones, in that iconic nude Playboy shoot with then-boyfriend Dolph Lundgren; Isabella Rossellini, her face gripped by former flame David Lynch.” 

The women in Newton’s professional life speak out about working with him – both with their experiences with him in front of and behind the camera. The film contains interviews with prominent female icons such as Charlotte Rampling and Anna Wintour.

 

Director: Gero Van Böhm

Germany 2020. DCP. 90min. English dialogue with Danish subtitles. With Charlotte Rampling, Grace Jones, Isabella Rossellini
