With exclusive new research revealing incredible recent discoveries, the Van Gogh Museum has helped craft a cinema experience like no other. Not to be missed.
Vincent Van Gogh was a prolific letter-writer – and the film has worked its way through the entire collection to choose the most revealing and moving moments, with actor Jamie de Courcey (Downton Abbey) as Van Gogh bringing to life these illuminating letters to his family and friends, making the film accessible to all ages.
The film also offers exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Van Gogh Museum as it engages in this complete re-hang. Among the key interviewees are Vincent Willem Van Gogh (great grandson of Theo van Gogh), Dominique-Charles Janssens (President of the Institute Van Gogh), Axel Rüger (Director, Van Gogh Museum) and Van Gogh Museum Senior Researchers Teio Meedendorp and Louis van Tilborgh.
