Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film which brings the paintings and subjects of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. It follows the last few days of the Dutch Master’s passionate and ill-fated life to his mysterious death in July 1890.
As the only English oil-painter among a 125-strong global team of artists, working in Poland and Greece on this extraordinary animated film, Helford-based Sarah Wimperis became immersed in the themes, style and world of Van Gogh.
On Monday 20 November The Poly, in association with Beside the Wave gallery, will be hosting a special Cornish premiere for Loving Vincent – with a chance to meet the artist over a glass of wine beforehand at Beside the Wave Falmouth. Sarah will then be on stage at The Poly, after the screening, to answer all audience questions.
This special Loving Vincent evening starts from 5.30pm – 7pm at Beside the Wave Falmouth on Monday 20 November; the film itself begins at 7.30pm along the road at The Poly with a Q & A session with Sarah Wimperis immediately afterwards.
Sarah will also be taking questions following the second screening of the film on Tuesday 21 November at 7.30pm.
