Film: Loving Vincent

December 5, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The world’s first fully oil painted feature, this film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story.

 

On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little-known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.

 

Every one of the 65,000 frames is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil- painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.

 

“An animated masterpiece! An absolutely stunning film that not only does justice to the art of Van Gogh but also to the art of movies. I have never seen anything on screen like it before. You will be amazed and lifted by this extraordinary film.” Pete Hammond, Deadline
