Artist in Focus: Nick Broomfield

Nick Broomfeld has a BAFTA and dozens of prizes from prestigious film festivals to show off. In recent decades he has made documentaries about a range of subjects, but what stood out were his special portraits of tragic and fascinating public figures: musicians such as Whitney Houston, Kurt Cobain, Tupac Shakur and Leonard Cohen, but also serial killers Aileen Wuornos and the Grim Sleeper. His films regularly feature a healthy dose of self-reflection, and it is not uncommon for film making itself to be the theme. At DOCVILLE he presents his newest and most personal film, My Father and Me.
