Great Art on Screen
Frida - Viva La Vida is a cinematic documentary event film that highlights the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: a revolutionary pioneering artist of contemporary feminism and also a human being tormented by agony and love.
With Asia Argento as narrator, the two faces of the artist will be revealed, by pursuing a common thread consisting of Frida’s own words: letters, diaries and private confessions. The documentary film event will alternate interviews with historical documents, captivating reconstructions and Frida Kahlo’s own paintings, kept in some of the most amazing museums in Mexico.
Part of Symphony Space's Great Art on Screen series, experience a cinematic immersion into the world's best-loved art, accompanied by insights from leading historians and art critics.
