65,000 paintings, telling the story of one man

“We cannot speak other than by our paintings,” wrote Vincent van Gogh in his last letter. In response, Loving Vincent tells the story of one of the most celebrated artists of all time, Vincent van Gogh, by reconstituting his paintings through montage to reveal their histories. This animated feature was first shot with actors playing the characters in van Gogh’s portraits, then assiduously painted over, frame-by-frame, in the style of the master. In all, 65,000 paintings by over a hundred artists around the world were produced and translated into moving image. The result is this shimmering work of art, filled with light and movement.

Film form is echoed in the narrative, which is structured as a quest for the real cause of van Gogh’s tragic death. Armand Roulin, son of van Gogh’s good friend Postman Joseph Roulin, sets out to deliver the artist’s final letter to his brother Theo, but grows in compassion for the troubled soul after hearing accounts from people in his past. In seeking to understand why he died, Armand learns of his extraordinary life, including his fraught personal relationships and part in artistic circles which included Impressionist artists like Camille Pissarro, as well as Paul Gauguin, Emile Bernard and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec.

Post-screening dialogue with art curator Russell Storer.
