LOVING VINCENT
– 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. This feature-length painted animation — the first film of its kind — explores the life and unusual death of Vincent Van Gogh via depictions of his artworks.
