We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows, and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman? Making use of the latest technology to illuminate her paintings, Exhibition on Screen returns to Cinestudio to explore Kahlo’s unique art and find the truth behind her often turbulent life. Using Kahlo’s letters as a guide, 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 with curators, visits to Kahlo exhibitions around the world, and a detailed exploration of her art deliver a treasure trove of color and vibrancy. This personal and intimate film offers privileged access to Kahlo’s works, and highlights her feverish creativity, her resilience, and her unmatched passion for politics, men, women, and her Mexican cultural heritage.

“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” Frida Kahlo.
