[edit] Information

A look into Frida Kahlo's world, revealing an artist driven by politics, power, sex and identity, with her epic love affair with Diego Rivera at the heart of it all. Chapter 1: The Making and Breaking Biographer Martha Zamora describes Frida's rebellious schooldays, where she falls in with the boys and meets Diego Rivera, a superstar artist who will go on to change her life. But in 1925, a tragic accident thwarts Frida's ambition of becoming a doctor. Left facing a life of pain and injury, she channels this pain and uses it as the catalyst for her artistic career. Chapter 2: Love and Loss Frida and Diego travel to San Francisco, where he has an important mural commission. Frida's style stirs much excitement, and she is determined to succeed in her own right in the face of Diego's affairs. Shocked by the vast gap between rich and poor that she witnesses in Depression-era New York, she struggles to hide her disdain for high society. After losing a child to miscarriage and her mother to illness, she produces some of her most visceral and devastating works. Chapter 3: A Star is Born Dangerous politics and turbulent love shock Frida's world. After conducting a short affair with Leon Trotsky, Diego's political mentor, she finally achieves her own solo exhibition in Europe. But all does not go according to plan, and she returns to Mexico to find that Diego wants a divorce. Pouring her pain into work, she creates one of her most famous masterpieces - The Two Fridas.
