Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman
Oscar Nomination 2018 – Best Animated Feature Film
This beautiful work has made history in the genre of animation cinema being entirely brought to life by oil paintings. A young man comes to Vincent van Gogh’s last hometown to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his last days there. While there have been several other movies about van Gogh, this film is filled with contrasting and conflicting stories, theories and recollections, and descriptions of events from those who crossed paths with the artist on a daily basis. An enchanting watch of magnificent painting and animation!
