In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to Vincent van Gogh’s last hometown to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his final days there. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings are his passionate and ill-fated life and mysterious death.
At once a biopic and a detective story, this festival hit delves into the life of one of the most well-known yet enigmatic painters that ever lived. Nearly six years in the making, and nominated for an Academy Award® in 2018, Loving Vincent is an unusual, dreamlike look at the man behind the artist.
