Who this event is for
JHB Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
Oxford Human Rights Festival screening of the Oscar nominated animated film Loving Vincent.
"On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now one of the most famous artists in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story."
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on mental health with advocates and practitioners from the School of Nursing here at Oxford Brookes and further afield.
