Inspired by his youth in Berlin, Helmut Newton was a trailblazing late photographer who had a defining impact on the worlds of fashion and art and rose to a cult status in existence to this day. Women were clearly at the core of his legendary photographer work. The stars of his iconic portraits and fashion editorials – from Catherine Deneuve to Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling to Isabella Rossellini – finally give their own interpretation of the life and work of this controversial genius: a portrait by the portrayed. Provocative, unconventional, and, at times, subversive, his depiction of women still sparks the question: were they subjects or objects? The documentary features home movies, archival footage, and a plethora of stills to illustrate the life and work of the controversial genius. In English, French, and German with English subtitles. Not Rated. Director: Gero Von Boehm (Germany 2020) 93 min.
