Loving Vincent (12A)

The world's first painted feature film brings together 65,000 oil painted frames to reveal a stunning portrait of the life, work and untimely death of Vincent Van Gogh. 

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 has been 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 Douglas Booth, Saoirse Ronan, Aidan Turner and Helen McCrory forms the basis of the frames created by some 115 professional artists and over 3,000 litres of oil paint in this seven-years-in-the-making film from Oscar-winning British animator Hugh Welchman and his wife, Polish artist and director Dorota Kobiela.
