Join us for a special Gala screening, broadcast live from the National Gallery (London) which will include a lively post-film discussion and interactive Q&A with Directors Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela and other special guests. The world's first fully painted animated feature, which took 5 years to complete, brings to life a stellar cast and a true tribute to the Dutch master.
29th July, 1890: Vincent Van Gogh, bullet in his belly, stumbles along the drowsy high street of Auvers at twilight. Traditionally, the famously troubled artist’s death is viewed as suicide. But ‘Loving Vincent’ delves into the ambiguities of his life and last days to reconsider this narrative via the stories of his paintings and the people who inhabit them. Footage originally performed by a cast including Robert Gulaczyk, Saoirse Ronan, Aidan Turner and Helen McCrory forms the basis of frames which mimic Van Gogh’s singular Impressionist technique. Thick daubs of flickering, variegated colours play over each character’s face, revealing the depth and ambiguity of their shifting thoughts and emotions in a truly innovative way and enhancing our understanding of a canonical artist and his great interior anguish.
