Kurt Cobain, Margaret Thatcher, rap stars Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur, Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and serial killer Aileen Wuornos are just a few of the icons whom Nick Broomfield has chased down and shot in the pursuit of truth.

Over the past twenty-five years Nick Broomfield has established himself as Britain's best-known and most unflaggingly controversial director of documentaries. He has pursued the likes of South African supremacist Eugene Terre 'Blanche, comedienne Lily Tomlin and rock star Courtney Love - as well as investigating inside an Army barracks in Soldier Girls, a Nevada brothel in Chicken Ranch and an upscale S&M parlour in Fetishes.

This is Broomfield in his own words, as frank and revealing as his inimitable films.
