Animated Events: DFT Animation Club: 'Loving Vincent'

This Fall, Loving Vincent comes to the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit and the Urban Institute of Arts in Grand Rapids.

From the film's website:

"On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers.

The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly.

This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world.

His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.

Loving Vincent tells that story."

You can read more about Loving Vincent at the official website:

The film will be shown on Saturday, October 14th at the Detroit Institute of Arts' Detroit Film Theater. Additionally, it will be shown at the Urban Institute of Art in Grand Rapids on the weekend of November 17th.
