Loving Vincent is the world's first fully painted feature film, so what better place to screen it than the Main Corner Complex, home to the Riddoch Art Gallery.
Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman, and produced by Poland's Breakthru Films & UK's Trademark Films, this feature film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting, hand-painted by 125 professional artists who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be part of the production.
No other artist has attracted more legends than Vincent van Gogh. Variously labelled a martyr, a lustful satyr, a madman, a genius and a layabout, the real Vincent is at once revealed in his letters, and obscured by myth and time. Vincent himself said in his last letter: "We cannot speak other than by our paintings'. We take him at his word and let the paintings tell the real story of Vincent van Gogh.
