Releasing in UK Cinemas on Tuesday 8th June: Beautiful new documentary on Van Gogh's greatest masterwork 'Sunflowers'
Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. What many mistake for one masterpiece, are actually five paintings of sunflowers in vases scattered across galleries in Amsterdam, London, Munich, Philadelphia and Tokyo. This extraordinary feature-length documentary film brings the spectacular series together on screen as never seen before.
Working closely with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Sunflowers goes beyond a 'virtual exhibition', delving into the rich and complex stories behind each of the paintings to unveil the mysteries of the sunflowers. What did the flowers mean to Van Gogh, and why do they resonate so much with audiences today? With a striking portrayal of the artist by actor Jamie de Courcey and fascinating insights from art historians, botanists and everything in between, the film offers a unique insight into Van Gogh's life and artwork.
