The truth is, we cannot speak other than by our paintings
In a story depicted in oil-painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his final days there.
He becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. And as he digs further, he comes to realize that Vincent’s troubled life is as much a matter of interpretation as his paintings and there are no easy answers for a man whose work and tragedy would only be truly appreciated in the future.
The Independent’s reviewer wrote: “The real measure of Loving Vincent is that it should appeal to anyone with a passing interest in its subject but is authoritative enough to intrigue the experts too.
“As a piece of handcrafted animation, it provides a welcome contrast to all those movies full of cutesy talking animals turned out by the Hollywood studios. Reportedly over 65,000 individual paintings were created by more than 100 artists in the process of shooting the feature. You can’t help but admire the sheer scope of the filmmakers’ vision and the painstaking way they went about crafting their tribute to Van Gogh.”
Films at the Goods Shed are projected on to a six-metre (19 feet 8 inches) wide screen, with sound provided by a multipoint Dolby system. The 180 seats are purpose-made for auditorium use and are tiered, giving everyone a comfortable and unobstructed view of the screen.
