The world’s first fully painted animated feature returns to QFT after its sold out Cinemagic screening in October.
Loving Vincent stars Douglas Booth and Oscar-nominated Saoirse Ronan and took five years to make. Consisting of 65,000 oil painted frames produced by 115 professional artists, the film explores the life and controversial death of Vincent van Gogh, told by his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them.
Beginning a year after his demise, this portrait of the artist is built via a series of interviews conducted by Armand Roulin (Booth) - a regular model for the artist’s portraits - who becomes obsessed with van Gogh’s death, caused by a bullet wound to the stomach. Was it an accident? Was it suicide? Loving Vincent sets out to explore one of art’s great mysteries.
