Van Gogh’s life has long captured the imagination of storytellers. Delving deep into his fascinating and sometimes deeply troubled world comes this definitive, award-winning documentary directed by David Bickerstaff. Showcasing Van Gogh’s works like never before, and shot in 4K exclusively for the big screen, this Exhibition on Screen favourite makes a much-desired return, screening in cinemas across Australia.
Vincent van Gogh: A New Way of Seeing provides an extraordinary biography of Van Gogh’s life made with privileged access to the treasures of Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, featuring interviews with key curators and historians including Vincent Willem van Gogh (great grandson of Theo van Gogh), Dominique Charles Janssens (President of the Institut Van Gogh), Axel Rüger (Director, Van Gogh Museum) and Van Gogh Museum Senior Researchers Teio Meedendorp and Louis van Tilborgh. With complete access to the galleries and the storerooms, this film gives audiences unprecedented views of Van Gogh’s remarkable paintings and drawings. The film also travels through Europe to the very locations Van Gogh worked.
The Van Gogh Museum houses the largest collection of Vincent’s artistic output in the world and features works such as The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers, Irises, The Bedroom and many of his self-portraits. Vincent van Gogh: A New Way of Seeing provides a high-definition cinematic experience of seeing Vincent’s masterpieces up-close on the big screen as well as offering great biographical insight, as the highly regarded Institut Van Gogh says, ‘Discover the real Van Gogh’.
