“Look at the pictures”, said Senador Jesse Helms, denouncing the controversial art of Robert Mapplethorpe, whose photographs pushed boundaries with honest depictions of nudity, sexuality and fetishism, igniting a culture war that rages to this day. 

More than 25 years later, the HBO Documentary Films presentation Mapplethorpe: Look At The Pictures does just that, taking an unflinching, unprecedented look at his most provocative work. 

From acclaimed filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato and produced by Katharina Otto-Bernstein, the 1st feature-length documentary about the artist since his death, and the most comprehensive film on Mapplethorpe ever, debuts April 4 on HBO. Check out the trailer below...
