"People forget how radical my work was." – Nan Goldin

Nan Goldin is one of America's most notorious and influential photographers. She made her name documenting the post-punk movement in 1980s New York City, captured the post-Stonewall gay subculture that sprung up in the city and controversially documented the world of addiction and hard drugs. Now, decades later, Goldin travels from Paris to Berlin, reconnecting with long-lost friends and reliving the highs and lows of her extraordinary life.

Director Sabine Lidl turns the camera back on Goldin, an artist who is famously candid on both her photographic subjects and herself. Nan Goldin: I Remember Your Face is an intimate and revealing insight into the life of an artist defined by sex, drugs and love.

"We are now living to a degree in a world that Nan Goldin created long before the digital camera and Instagram made it ubiquitous: a self-absorbed, often revelatory world where the everyday and the exotic exist in uneasy cohabitation." – The Guardian
