The documentary filmmaker Ondi Timoner (Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2009 for We Live in Public) traces the life of the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe (played by Matt Smith, Doctor Who) in this biopic, from the dawn of his fame to his premature death of AIDS in 1989, exploring the interweaving of his art and his sexuality, his pursuit of mainstream success and, in the background, the emergence of the spectre of AIDS.

Presented at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The film will be introduced by Nathaniel Dushku, producer, Amnon Lourie, co-producer and Crissy Brookshire, co-producer.
