This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Hugh Welchman
Vincent van Gogh is the world’s most famous painter. His Starry Night, Café Terrace at Night, Sunflowers, Wheatfield with Crows and indeed his own face in his many self-portraits are among the most recognised images in our world.
Van Gogh is not only famous for his paintings, but also for his tortured life, notably for cutting off his ear and shooting himself while painting at his easel – painting to the bitter end of his unhappy, misunderstood life. Loving Vincent, the first fully-painted feature film, explores van Gogh’s life and work by bringing to life some of his most inspirational paintings.
Loving Vincent, dir. Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela, UK/Poland 2017, 94 mins
