A labor of love, if ever there was one. Featuring hand-painted frames in the style of Van Gogh, this film follows a letter from Vincent Van Gogh to his brother Theo. It is being delivered by the son of a friend who finds himself on a quest to learn more about the mysterious circumstances surrounding Van Gogh’s death. The film is told through a series of flashbacks, which are shown in black and white to contrast the stunning color mimicking Vincent’s art. There is no way to describe this film, other than unique. It is a completely original work featuring 65,000 unique frames that came together to form a cohesive and timeless work of art that pays homage to one of the greatest artists of all time.
