Loving Vincent is about the life of the painter Vincent van Gogh, and the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film in history, directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman. Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, created using the same techniques as Van Gogh by a team of 125 artists drawn from around the globe.
