T1 The life and times of Frida Kahlo A1 Stechler, Amy,, Moreno, Rita., Downs, Lila., Daylight Films., WETA-TV (Television station : Washington, D.C.), Latino Public Broadcasting (Firm), PBS Home Video., PB Greater Washington Educational Telecommunications Association ; Distributed by PBS Home Video PP Washington, D.C.; Alexandria, VA YR 2005 SN 079369003X 9780793690039 AB Frida Kahlo transformed her life by painting herself and by making her own life a work of art. One critic identifies Kahlo as a definitive example of Mexico's mixteca, or mixed-race, majority, equal parts Spanish and indigenous. Frida's inward-looking obsession with her physical infirmities, abetted by the emotional roller coaster of her faithless marriage, led her to her artistic voice--painting images of her pain. Combining photos, archival films and interviews, the films grasps the complete story of Kahlo's life in all its dimensions, a mix of artistic discovery, physical challenge, and political activism, with Kahlo's artwork making a strong case for her lasting artistic importance.
