The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo (2004), directed by Amy Stechler

Just watched this fantastic documentary on Frida Kahlo. There were lots of old photos, home movies, journal entries, and letters included. Very well done exploration of her life and art. Highly recommended.

If you haven’t seen the movie Frida, with Salma Hayek, you should see that as well.

Never before has the extraordinary life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo been framed in relation to the full spectrum of the historical and cultural influences that shaped her.

The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo explores the 20th-century icon who became an international sensation in the worlds of modern art and radical politics. Rita Moreno – the Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winning actress – narrates the film.
