COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Helmut Newton, l’un des photographes les plus influents de son époque, a consacré une grande partie de son œuvre à célébrer les femmes. Dès 1960, il est un précurseur controversé, mettant en scène des femmes libres et affranchies des codes sociaux. C'est au tour de ces femmes photographiées par Newton de tirer son portrait. À travers leurs regards se révèle un pionnier à l'humour insolent, en lutte contre le puritanisme. De son enfance dans l'Allemagne nazie à un Paris iconique immortalisé par ses photographies, elles retracent la vie d'un génie épris de liberté.

"Inspired by his roots in Berlin, German photographer Helmut Newton rose to a cult status that exists today, even after his tragic death in a Los Angeles car crash in 2006. He bounced around from Singapore to Australia to Paris to Los Angeles, but Weimer Germany would become the visual hallmark and signature of his work- the past would continue to haunt each and every image. // As one of the great masters of photography, Newton made a name for himself exploring and elevating the female form. Through candid interviews, Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Wintour and others, including Newton’s wife June, share their thoughts on Newton’s life and legacy, and remain at the core of his work – capturing provocative, unconventional and, at times, subversive images of women. His unique and striking way of depicting women still begs the controversial question – were these women subjects or objects for Newton? The film also features home movies, archival footage, and of course still photographs to create this portrait of a controversial genius."
