Summary
"Controversial conceptual artist Vanessa Beecroft, known for staging striking tableaux of nude female models, is smitten with a pair of Sudanese twins during an African photo shoot. Determined to adopt them whether her husband, the local orphanage, or the government of Sudan likes it or not, she returns to this captivating environment. Cameras rolling, award-winning documentarian Piettra Brettkelly follows Beecroft over a difficult 16-month fight to become the first foreigner in history to legally take children out of this impoverished and beleaguered country. The candid moments that arise reveal a talented artist at her best and worst, and shed light on the inflammatory subject of international adoption"--Container
