Creativity in cinema comes in all forms. Perhaps it’s represented by a team of talented, artistic animators who brilliantly bring a story to life in ways that make us forget it’s not even real people we’re viewing on the screen. Or, it could be a brilliant director who somehow has visions above and beyond what the average person can even imagine, and can extract the most perfect performances from the chosen cast of players. Then again, maybe it’s a gifted musician and composer who can transport us to a completely different, far-off world, where we can settle in comfortably and just get lost in that magical place where music takes us. In this series we’ll look at five films that represent various forms of the creative mind at work. One film we will enjoy is Loving Vincent, which brings Vincent van Gogh to life in a way you’ve never viewed him before.
