Get a glimpse of the gorgeous upcoming biopic exploring Vincent Van Gogh mysterious death.
What went on in the blazing imagination of iconic post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh? A biopic seven years in the making attempts to offer a glimpse into the revolutionary artist’s beautiful mind using the medium he preferred: paint.
Painter Dorota Kobiela and filmmaker Hugh Welchman are the guiding forces behind “Loving Vincent”. Accordingly which is reportedly the first entirely hand-painted feature film ever made. On Monday, the internet was blessed with a full trailer for the movie, which HuffPost originally covered last year.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film takes the shape of a mystery, revolving around Van Gogh’s sudden death in 1890. A character based on real-life portrait subject Armand Roulin serves as the narrator and pseudo-detective in the movie. He retraces Van Gogh’s steps and revisits his most iconic artworks in a search for a plausible explanation for the artist’s contested suicide.
Rather than coming to a clean conclusion, the film offers a complicated portrait of a man whose mental health remains a subject of debate to this day.
The film creation is with the help of 125 artists. They together transformed 120 of van Gogh’s paintings into 65,000 painted frames predicated on live action sequences. After a callout for artists went viral this past year, Van Gogh wannabes applied to train and work at the film’s studio in Gdansk, Poland.
“We cannot speak other than by our paintings,”. Van Gogh wrote in a letter to his brother Theo shortly before his loss of life. Thanks to Kobiela and Welchman’s ambitious project, vehicle Gogh’s story will be told in his native tongue.
Finally, according to IMDB, “Loving Vincent” has some recognizable stars on board. Chris O’Dowd, Saoirse Ronan and Aidan Turner, to name a few. The film is going to hit theaters Sept. 22.
