RWV Kanopy Movie Group

  • Our November film is "Loving Vincent: The Impossible Dream."
  • Watch on your library's Kanopy service or Amazon Prime ahead of time. You watch when who want. (about an hour)
  • We will have a Zoom discussion on the Thursday, November 12 at 10:00 am

This is the first full-length, hand painted film taking 10 years to complete. It gives us a compelling story, focusing on Vincent van Gogh's last days, with a unique theory of the cause of his death.  The artists involved duplicated van Gogh's painting style in creating each scene of the film.  And every scene of the film is a "reenactment" (for want of a better word) of one of van Gogh's paintings.

Watching through the end credits is especially satisfying: we learn of the collaboration of fine art and technology which resulted in this work.
