Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

In this documentary exploring the life of artist Frida Kahlo, rare footage, family interviews, and photographs combine to paint an intimate portrait of an anguished artist whose tragic life fueled a passion to create. From her troubled relationship with fellow artist Diego Rivera to her scandalous lesbian affairs and the art that made her a legend, this is the story of Kahlo as told through the eyes of those who knew her best.
