Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures @ACMI #Melbourne [#geekgirl]

OPENS 22 SEP, 2016

Having screened both at Sundance and the Berlin Film Festivals, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato’s (Inside Deep Throat, The Eyes of Tammy Faye) compelling and candid documentary examines the career of one of America’s greatest and most controversial photographers. Seen through the prism of the culture wars between America’s Christian right and the National Endowment of the Arts, what emerges is a balanced and powerful document on the power of artistic expression and the devastating legacy of HIV/AIDS.
