Reclaim the Frame's UK Premiere: Frida (TBC) (AD)

Frida Kahlo lies in the sun with an arm dangled over her eyes.

A raw and magical journey into the life of iconic artist Frida Kahlo, told through her own words from diaries, letters, essays, and interviews by director Carla Gutierrez.

An intimately raw and magical journey through the life, mind, and heart of iconic artist Frida Kahlo, FRIDA is told through her own words for the very first time, drawn from her famed illustrated diary, letters, essays, and candid interviews — and brought vividly to life by lyrical animation inspired by her artwork. 

The feature film directorial debut of acclaimed editor Carla Gutiérrez (RBG, La Corona), FRIDA posits a striking context as to why the artist – and her art -- remains as powerful as ever. 

Covering more than 40 years of her life, the filmmakers received unrestricted access to research materials, much never shown to the general public before. A living portrait emboldened by the magical realism befitting Kahlo's remarkable life emerges.
