Art on Screen - Frida: Viva La Vida

Release date NZ: 30 / 01 / 2020
Release date AUS: N/A

RUN TIME: 90 minutes

GENRE: Documentary

STARRING: Featuring Asia Argento (David di Donatello Award Winner)

The film highlights the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: on one side the revolutionary, pioneering artist of contemporary feminism and on the other, the human being, victim of her tortured body and a tormented relationship.

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 film alternates interviews, with original documents, captivating reconstructions and Frida Kahlo’s own paintings, kept in some of the most amazing museums in Mexico.
