A wildly entertaining portrait of the revered and controversial photographer, Helmut Newton: The Bad and the Beautiful explores the career of an artist who had a defining impact on the world of fashion.

One of the great masters of photography, Helmut Newton’s unique and striking way of depicting women has always posed the question: did he empower his subjects or treat them as sexual objects?

Through candid interviews with his greatest subjects and collaborators, including some of the most renowned models and actresses of all time, this in-depth documentary captures his legacy and seeks to answer questions about the themes at the core of his life's work – creating provocative, subversive and erotically charged photo images of women.
