‘The Peasants’ Review — ‘Loving Vincent’ Creators Outdo Themselves
In 2017, directors DK Welchman and Hugh Welchman released Loving Vincent, a tremendous undertaking that includes 65,000 frames of film which were oil painted by hand to look like the work of Vincent van Gogh. Loving Vincent was a remarkable testament to the incredible painter, bringing his work to life in a fascinating and stunning way unlike we’d ever seen before in a film that rightfully earned an Academy Award nomination. Six years later, the Welchmans have returned with The Peasants, another unbelievably ambitious project that was filmed in live action and then painted over with 40,000 oil paintings. While the subject matter is far more obscure than the paintings of one of the world’s most famous painters, the result is equally as extraordinary.
DK Welchman and Hugh Welchman bring Polish culture and art to life in stunning fashion with The Peasants. Read on for our review.
