Directed by Dorota Kobiela, the animated film was a project of seven years, combining the art of painting and cinema.

"Van Gogh’s style was perfect for the project; his paintings show all the details of his life, his day-to-day habits, his house, his room, his friends," Dorota told AFP ahead of Sunday’s Oscar ceremonies in Los Angeles.
