About the film:
The Golden Suicides is about the double suicide of artists Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake. Duncan and Blake formed a popular couple on the downtown New York and Venice, CA, art scenes. She was one of the first videogame designers for girls, and his "digital paintings" - kaleidoscopic images shown on plasma screens - established him as a rising star on the circuit.

The couple descended into a paranoid spiral when the artists developed a consuming belief that government and religious organizations were conspiring against them. She killed herself in 2007. Blake found the body on the floor of their bedroom, and walked into the Atlantic Ocean a week later, ending his life.
