Passionate about the visual arts since childhood, Todd Haynes studied art and semiotics at Brown University. In 1987, he created the short film “Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story” with Barbie dolls. Since then, he has tirelessly continued to address questions of gender and identity. His first feature film POISON, inspired by Jean Genet, was released in 1991 and won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. After SAFE (1995), which revealed Julianne Moore, he conjured David Bowie during the Ziggy Stardust period in VELVET GOLDMINE (1998), then paid homage to Douglas Sirk in FAR FROM HEAVEN (2002). In 2007, he had six actors play Bob Dylan in I’M NOT THERE (a Film Forum premiere), then directed the mini-series “Mildred Pierce” (2011) before returning to feature films in 2015 with CAROL (2015), WONDERSTRUCK (2017), and DARK WATERS (2019). THE VELVET UNDERGROUND is Haynes’s first documentary.
