When: Saturday, August 18th, 2:15pm
Where: Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema, 506 Bloor Street W.

Immerse yourself in the extraordinary world of celebrated Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Made during the height of the Mexican Revolution, Kahlo's work was radical and deeply personal--reflecting the anguish she suffered following a brutal car accident, years of traumatic surgery, and endless heartache. Filmed at the Blue House in San Angel she called home and weaving together stunning archival images and soul-stirring music, this rarely-seen biopic offers an intimate portrait of one of the most astonishing artistic figures of the twentieth century.
