Directed by DK Welchman and Hugh Welchman (Poland, UK, USA, Switzerl, and the Netherlands, 2017, 94 min.).
Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film, blending historical facts with a fictional plot to illuminate the last years of Vincent van Gogh’s life. Every one of the 65,000 frames is a hand-painted oil painting—all created by 125 professional artists who traveled from across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to participate in the production. Featuring the voices of Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, and many more.
“The animation is a mercurial wonder; a snaking, vibrant vision in the golds, ochres, and cornflower blues that sing of the artist’ s most famous work.” —Observer
