Frida Kahlo was ahead of her time and her art and life resonates for many reasons in the modern world.
The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo is an intimate biography of a woman who gracefully balanced a private life of illness and pain, against a public persona that was flamboyant, irreverent and world-renowned. Kahlo was an eyewitness to a unique pairing of revolution and renaissance that defined the times in which she lived.
Through the prism of her life and art, the film explores the ancient culture of Mexico; the Mexican Revolution; the wildfire of communism that burned through Latin America in the 1920s and '30s; the innovators in painting, photography, filmmaking, writing and poetry that congregated in Mexico City; and the revival of interest in popular culture for which Kahlo has become a symbol.
