On the Day of the Dead, Frida Kahlo is cooking.
While she waits for her guests to arrive, she evokes Diego Rivera, Nelson Rockefeller, Leon Trotsky, exposes her opinion on art, Mexico, the United States, France and of course, the memory of her terrible accident and the presence of death.
Humberto Robles’s Viva La Vida, inspired by authentic documents, materials and memoirs from Frida Kahlo, reveals the woman behind the icon, the artist beyond the face printed on millions of bags, wallets and other paraphernalia.
Kate Bookalil stars as Frida Kahlo. Anna Jahjah directs.
