The story is presented through oil painted animation, a 6 year labour of love. A total of 125 classically trained artists from all over the world, including Ottawa-born Val Fulford, created more than 1,300 paintings, which became 65,000 painted frames. A young man goes to Vincent van Gogh’s last hometown to deliver a final letter to the troubled artist. He ends up investigating van Gogh’s final days there - was it murder or suicide?
“Loving Vincent is a visual masterpiece unto itself ” The Globe & Mail
“Brings a poetic sense of tragedy to the last act of van Gogh’s life, and fresh insight into the kind of man he was” Variety
