Part of the Over the Rainbow Season
A layered examination of the often-controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe from the directorial duo behind Inside Deep Throat and Party Monster. Mapplethorpe tackles the late artist's notoriety head-on, stopping to appreciate his body of work along the way, and doesn't shy away from his insatiable ambition and personal relationships - two things that regularly intertwined throughout his life. While telling his story with an engaging blend of interviews and archive footage, the documentary presents his work, uncensored, and invites us to Look at the Pictures.
Screening to coincide with ARTIST ROOMS: Self Evidence | Photographs by Woodman, Arbus and Mapplethorpe at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery - on display until Sunday 20th October. More information here.
