Images in this article are from the Mapplethorpe Film Indiegogo Page, now closed after a successful campaign. Mapplethorpe has landed distribution by Samuel Goldwyn Films.
Nicholas Snow had two brushes with greatness (among many) early during Outfest 2018, the first of which was interviewing Mapplethorpe director/co-screenwriter Ondi Timoner on the opening night red carpet; the second was seeing the film and broadcasting the post-screening Q&A live from the Director’s Guild of America Theatre 1. Both live broadcasts are on-demand below.
The aforementioned Indiegogo page explains, “Mapplethorpe is a biographical feature film about the iconic artist and cultural iconoclast, American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Famous for his highly stylized black and white photography, his work featured an array of subjects including celebrity portraits, male and female nudes, self-portraits, and images of flowers. His most controversial work is that of the underground BDSM scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s New York City. The homoeroticism of this work fuelled a national debate over the public funding of controversial art. The biopic chronicles his journey as an artist growing up in 1950’s Queens, New York. He relentlessly pursued a career in fine art, gaining recognition as one of the world’s most important photographers. Robert Mapplethorpe died of AIDS at the age of 42 leaving a legacy that has waited three decades for the telling on film.”
