Synopsis:
Frida Kahlo, the artist who more than any other was able to build an autobiography through pictures, could tell her story with such intensity: physical pain, her miscarriages, the tragedy of love and betrayal, and her political commitment. After her death, Frida became a pop icon who could draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to exhibitions dedicated to her, as well as inspire books, comics, songs, films and even fashion shows.
But who was Frida in real life? And how much energy and vitality are released from her paintings even when they portray pain and suffering? 'Frida: Via La Vida', the documentary-film directed by Giovanni Troilo, produced by Ballandi Arts and Nexo Digital, presents the six chapters of a journey in search of Frida, into the heart of Mexico, amid cactuses, monkeys, deer and parrots, alternating exclusive interviews, with period documents, evocative reconstructions and works by Kahlo herself, including the most famous self-portraits (from the one with Diego Rivera in 1931 to The Two Fridas in 1939, from The Broken Column of 1944 to The Wounded Deer of 1946).
