FRIDA. VIVA LA VIDA
USA, 2019. Directed by Giovanni Troilo. 98 min, NR

Sat 22 Feb 4PM + Sun 23 Feb 4PM / The Film House

The film highlights the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: the revolutionary, pioneering artist of contemporary feminism and the human being, victim of her tortured body and a tormented relationship. With Asia Argento as narrator, the two faces of the artist are revealed, 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.
