LOVING VINCENT is the world’s first fully oil painted feature film. Written & directed by Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman. Coming soon to Australian cinemas.
The film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.
Who am I in the eyes of most people. A nobody, a non-entity, an unpleasant person.
Someone who has not, and never will have, any position in society, in short the lowest of the low.
Well then, even if that was all absolutely true, one day I would like show by my work, what this non-entity has in his heart. Vincent van Gogh
