Loving Vincent w/ Q&A

Dir. Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman | UK / Poland 2017 | 91 min | cert 12A 

Due to popular demand we have organised another screening of this wonderful film, for those who were unable to catch it in previously. Artist Sarah Wimperis will once again be joining us for a Q&A after the film.
 
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.
 
On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story.
 
In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist's final letter and ends up investigating his final days there.
 
Tickets: £10 adult / £8 concession (inc. Poly Fund)

The film itself begins at 19:30 with a Q&A session with Sarah Wimperis immediately afterwards.
