Leonard Nimoy

Jean Michel-Richaud


An Exhilarating look into the mind of a misunderstood genius.

A few days after the death of little known painter Vincent Van Gogh,rumors are flying in Paris. Some say he was a penniless madman, a frequenter of prostitutes, a derelict and soon to be forgotten artist of trifling quality. Others denounce him as a wayward priest and unwelcome foreigner. Many whisper he took his own life in a moment of insanity. His brother Theo, Vincent's confidante and lifelong supporter, is enraged. Tonight, he hopes to set the record straight.
