Pre-screening Talk: Van Gogh in Focus
IU School of Art, Architecture, and Design, Fine Arts 102
Nan Brewer, the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art's Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will discuss Vincent van Gogh's technique and influences, as well as a rare etching, Portrait of Dr. Paul-Ferdinand Gachet, in the museum's collection.
(2017, 95 min., Rated PG-13)
Directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman
This Academy Award-nominated animated biopic transforms Dutch master Vincent van Gogh's artworks into the world's first entirely hand-painted feature film. It weaves nearly 130 of the artist's iconic paintings into a detective story that is itself a "one-of-a-kind work of art." Made over seven years, actors recreated the scenes in front of green screens, then 125 artists hand painted each of the 62,450 frames in Van Gogh's style. Voice work by actors like Saoirse Ronan and Chris O'Dowd enhances the experience.
This event is free but ticketed. To acquire advanced tickets please visit the IU Cinema's website.
Art and a Movie is sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes.
