Released to coincide with International Women's Day, Exhibtion on Screen is delighted to bring Frida Kahlo back to cinemas for the attention it deserves after last year's Covid restrictions.
Who was Frida Kahlo? Everyone knows her, but who was the woman behind the bright colours, the big brows, and the floral crowns? Take a journey through the life of a true icon, discover her art, and uncover the truth behind her often turbulent life.
Making use of the latest technology, we take an indepth look at key works throughout her career. Using letter Kahlo wrote to guide us, this definitive film reveals her deepest emotions and unlocks the secrets and symbolism contained within her art.
Exhibition on Screen's trademark combination of interviews, commentary, and a detailed exploration of her art delivers a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy. This personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works, and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience, and her unmatched lust for life, politics, men, and women.
