Frida - Academy Award winning biography
"Frida" chronicles the life Frida Kahlo shared unflinchingly and openly with Diego Rivera, as the young couple took the art world by storm. From her complex and enduring relationship with her mentor and husband to her illicit and controversial affair with Leon Trotsky, to her provocative and romantic entanglements with women, Frida Kahlo lived a bold and uncompromising life as a political, artistic, and sexual revolutionary.
The New York Times describes Frida Kahlo as “a compelling cult figure” who has transformed into “a universally recognized symbol of artistic triumph and feminist struggle,” 63 years after her death. “She was a genius before she was a refrigerator magnet, an ace manipulator of society and media nearly a century before social media came into existence,” wrote Guy Trebay.
