Van Gogh’s Artistry Fills Fernbank’s Five-Story IMAX® Screen

With the full force of the immersive IMAX® format, the extraordinary colors and passionate brushwork of Vincent van Gogh take on new life in the stunning giant screen film Van Gogh: Brush With Genius, showing in Fernbank Museum’s IMAX® Theatre from October 2-December 31, 2009.

Audiences will re-live Van Gogh’s life journey through his letters, visit the landscapes that inspired him, and discover a Van Gogh they never knew before.

Van Gogh: Brush With Genius—told with the stunning visual effects of the IMAX film format—retraces the artist’s journey from the time of his first canvases at the age of 27 to his death on July 29, 1890. Told from the perspectives of three main characters—Ellen Bakhuys, a museum researcher studying Van Gogh’s letters and notebooks; Peter Knapp, a documentary filmmaker, and Vincent van Gogh himself—the film covers the surprisingly short nine-year period of the artist’s career during which he painted more than 900 paintings.
