Take a journey through the life of a true icon, discover her art, and uncover the truth behind her often turbulent life. Making use of the latest technology to deliver previously unimaginable quality, we take an in-depth look at key works throughout her career.
“A fascinating, at times darkly disturbing film, we see Kahlo’s passion and lust for life, people and politics come vividly across in this film, similar in some ways but quite different to other recent biopics about Kahlo, which highlights the source of her obsessive inspiration, productivity and endurance.” Sydney Arts Guide
