Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

Documentarian Gero von Boehm sits down with noteworthy starlets and models from Claudia Schiffer and Grace Jones to Charlotte Rampling and Isabella Rossellini to explore the radical portraiture of photographer Helmut Newton and the impact his provocative, alluring, and at times transgressive photographs possessed in the realm of art and fashion. von Boehm peels away the rebellious layers of Newton's persona to expose the more humble individual beneath. Also featuring Anna Wintour and Catherine Deneuve.
