When art meets technology, magic is bound to happen.
Loving Vincent (2017) is the first of its kind feature film created by the film-makers reimagining 94 of Vincent Van Gogh's iconic paintings. The production started off as an idea of a short film by painter and filmmaker Dorota Kobiela, who found herself inspired by the life of Van Gogh after reading his letters and studying his paintings. Nine years after it entered into development, the 90-minute film released in September this year and went on to achieve immense critical acclaim all around the world.
Here are some interesting facts about the movie:
Loving Vincent is a painstaking tribute to Vincent Van Gogh and the 800 works of art he created in 8 short years, none of which sold during his lifetime. He went on to be named the 'Father of Modern Painting' by art historians. The film makers Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman stay true to Van Gogh's words in one of his last ever letters - "Well, The Truth Is, We Cannot Speak Other Than By Our Paintings".
