About the figure and life of Vincent van Gogh

Short films

Thu 1 Dec 2022

Invited by the Vincent van Gogh Foundation in Arles, the Phare festival will present on 1 December a selection of short films based on the figure and life of the famous Dutch artist. In the form of fictions, animations and documentaries, these films tinged with humour and fantasy, some of which were shot in and around Arles, will invite the public to discover the expatriate painter in a modern-day São Paulo and to plunge into the meanderings of his painting. This programme will also offer the opportunity to see or re-see Alain Resnais’ beautiful documentary, which revolutionised the art of documentary filming the painter’s colourful paintings in black and white…
