Loving Vincent w/ Q&A

Dir. Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman | UK / Poland 2017 | 91 min | cert 12A
Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film which brings the paintings and subjects of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. It follows the last few days of the Dutch Master’s passionate and ill-fated life to his mysterious death in July 1890.
As the only English oil-painter among a 125-strong global team of artists, working in Poland and Greece on this extraordinary animated film, Helford-based Sarah Wimperis became immersed in the themes, style and world of Van Gogh. 
The Poly, in association with Beside the Wave gallery, has the pleasure of hosting a special screening of Loving Vincent – with a chance to “meet the artist” over a glass of wine beforehand at Beside the Wave in Arwenack Street, where Sarah is showing work from her summer in France, painting “in the footsteps” of Van Gogh. She will then join us on stage at The Poly, after the screening, to answer all audience questions.
This special Loving Vincent evening starts from 17:00 – 19:00 at Beside the Wave; the film itself begins at 19:30 with a Q&A session with Sarah Wimperis immediately afterwards.
Sarah will also be taking questions following our second screening of the film on Tuesday 21 November at 19:30.
