Vincent and Paul: Unspoken Brotherhood

Logline: An unsuccessful painter, Vincent van Gogh, plummets into the realms of madness after being rejected by his homosexual lover.

This story accurately depicts the extraordinary and controversial life of the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. Vincent went against the status quo. He was unapologetically homosexual at a time when it was taboo for a man to engage in sexual relations with another man—doing so led to ridicule and shame from the community and society.

The events that ended Vincent's life started with the artist Paul Gauguin. Paul was a narcissist. He was broke and needed representation, so he befriended Vincent. Then, he deceived Vincent through a sexual relationship in exchange for representation.

After getting representation from the art dealer, Theo van Gogh, the egocentric Gauguin shuns Vincent, which plunges him into the realms of madness.

Did Vincent cut off his ear, or did Paul sever Vincent's ear in rage? Did Vincent commit suicide, or was he killed accidentally? Vincent and Paul: Unspoken Brotherhood, the untold story.
