Nayland Cinema 'Loving Vincent'
Friday 14 June 2019
Nayland Village Hall
First conceived as a seven-minute short movie in 2008, Loving Vincent was realised by Dorota Kobiela, a painter herself, after studying the techniques and the artist's story through his letters. Each of the film's 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of over 100 painters.
Loving Vincent is structured like a detective story. One year after Vincent van Gogh's suicide, postman Joseph Roulin asks his son Armand to deliver Van Gogh's last letter to his brother, Theo. Roulin finds the death suspicious, as merely weeks earlier Van Gogh claimed through letters that his mood was calm and normal. As he tries to deliver the letter, Roulin discovers more and more about the artist and investigates (inconclusively) the theory that Vincent van Gogh did not shoot himself but was actually shot as a bizarre prank by a local bully.
Starts 7.30pm, doors open 7pm at Nayland Village Hall CO6 4JH. Entry is £5 with 16 years and under £2. Every fifth film will be free. Tea/coffee and biscuits are by donation with a charge for other refreshments and bar.
Loving Vincent is a 2017 experimental animated biographical drama film about the life of the painter Vincent van Gogh, and, in particular, about the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film.
