For one night only, art aficionados are welcome to experience the film premiere of Loving Vincent on Monday. The world got a peek at this film when a stunning trailer was posted online, becoming an overnight sensation. 

The film begins after the death of van Gogh and follows one man’s quest to discover how he really died. He is believed to have killed himself, but he seemingly went from completely calm to suicidal in just a few short weeks.

In van Gogh’s own style of painting, we go along on an exploration into his extraordinary life and mysterious death.
