Call for entries | Punto de Vista 2023
Country: Belgium, Portugal.
Direction: José Fernandes
The reading of a letter addressed to his brother, Theo, is the metaphoric starting point of this suggestive immersion into the work and places inhabited by Vincent Van Gogh at a key moment in his artistic life, when he abandoned his faith to rediscover the world of painting in the Belgian mining town of Borinage. A strange presence enters the house where he lived, recreates his studio, breathes his surroundings and travels the landscapes to merge with his own paintings, pure oil images that take the shape of a mysterious and elusive dream like the great Dutch maestro.
