Willem Dafoe picked up his fourth Oscar nomination for his searing portrayal of tortured Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh.

Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we find a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac) and a confiding priest (Mads Mikkelsen). 

Shot with a painter’s eye, artist-turned-filmmaker Julian Schnabel once again shows his talent for working with complex biography and the lives of artists as in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Basquiat.

The 6.15pm screening on Mon 1 Apr will be followed by a live satellite Q&A with writer/director Julian Schnabel in conversation with Carol Jacobi, exhibition curator of Tate Britain's Van Gogh and Britain.
