GREENFIELD — At 7 p.m. Monday, the Hancock County Public Library, 900 W. McKenzie Road, will host a screening of “Loving Vincent,” a 2017 Oscar nomination for best animated feature.
At twilight on July 27, 1890, a gaunt figure stumbled down the street in the small French town of Auvers, his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound in his belly. The man was Vincent van Gogh, then unknown; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what remains a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. This biographical film tells the story of the life of painter Vincent van Gogh, and the circumstances of his death. Each of the film’s 65,000 frames – created by a team of 125 artists — is an oil painting on canvas using the same technique as Van Gogh. It is the first fully painted animated feature film.
