A new documentary from director Thomas Marino takes a profound and introspective look into the life and art of the controversial artist

About this project

A new documentary from director Thomas Marino takes a profound and introspective look into the life and art of the controversial artist, Joel-Peter Witkin. Along with an in-depth interview with Witkin himself, the film features discussions with prominent artists, musicians, photographers and scholars who share insight into the impact of Witkin's work and influence on modern culture. The Documentary is half-way complete and is set for independent release in 2012.  We have already interviewed Joel-Peter Witkin and a few others. With your kind contribution we will be able to complete this film, and bring you one of the most compelling looks into Joel-Peter Witkin. Please watch our trailer. Thank you.
