The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins
Vanessa Beecroft operates in the world of high art and high society. Over the last few years Vanessa has been drawn to Africa and then ultimately to the Sudanese twins she met in an orphanage. As New York dealer Jeffrey Deitch states, with Vanessa there is no boundary between life and art. Alongside the adoption process she has photographed herself breast-feeding the twins, incorporating them into her provocative work. But what cost to her personal life? "The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins" is a timely documentary exploring the first world woman's aspirations to adopt from a developing country. And the risks to her marriage and her career that one woman takes to "save" Sudanese twins.
