VAN GOGH & JAPAN journeys from the critically acclaimed exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, to the beauty of Provence and the enigma of Japan itself.

Featuring Van Gogh’s personal letters and written accounts by friends and contemporaries, this extraordinary and moving film reveals the fascinating story of Van Gogh’s little-known deep connection to Japanese art, despite never travelling to Japan himself, and the role it has in understanding his most iconic works.

As well as investigating the expression of Van Gogh’s ‘japonisme,’ the film explores how Japanese society has developed an affinity to Van Gogh’s work as a result of his engagement with Japanese culture.

Featuring insights from contemporary artists, including calligrapher Tomoko Kawao and performance artist Tatsumi Orimoto, VAN GOGH & JAPAN provides revealing and modern perspectives on the rich, symbiotic relationship between Van Gogh and Japan.
