Here is an example of the kind of strange conundrum that presents itself to our Selection team from time to time.... We want to show the rather wonderful film "Loving Vincent" in our next season. It's the story of Vincent Van Goghs death and the circumstances that led up to it, but the extraordinary thing is that it is entirely painted in oils, based solely on the paintings that Van Gogh himself created about his life. It is entirely set in France, the costumes are French, the characters are French... even the music is French. But it is actually a Polish film that was created in Poland by a team of international artists. There is an English version and there is a French version and also a Polish version. So do we show the English version or the French version (with subtitles) or the Polish version ? That sound you are hearing is the scratching of heads....
