Description

Frida – Viva La Vida is a cinematic documentary event film that highlights the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: a revolutionary pioneering artist of contemporary feminism, and on the other, a human being tormented by agony and love.

With Asia Argento as narrator, the two faces of the artist will be revealed, by pursuing a common thread consisting of Frida’s own words: letters, diaries and private confessions. The documentary film event will alternate interviews with historical documents, captivating reconstructions and Frida Kahlo’s own paintings, kept in some of the most amazing museums in Mexico.

Featuring interviews with Hilda Trujillo Soto, the director of the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City and Cristina Kahlo, Frida Kahlo’s grandniece, historical documents, photographs, clothes and other personal items belonging to Frida, kept in the archives of the Frida Kahlo Museum and normally not accessible to the public, as well as captivating reconstructions, and Kahlo’s own paintings, on display in some of the most amazing museums in Mexico, this art documentary film retraces the life of Frida Kahlo between the suffering marking the events in her life and her unconditional love for her craft.

Great Art on Screen is a series of event documentaries featuring an in-depth look at the most extraordinary and groundbreaking art masters of their time.
