Through the prism of Frida Kahlo’s life and art, this documentary explores the ancient culture of Mexico; the Mexican Revolution; the wildfire of communism that burned through Latin America in the 1920s and ‘30s; the painters, photographers, filmmakers, writers, and poets who congregated in Mexico City; and the revival of interest in popular culture for which Kahlo has become a symbol. Her life as an international sensation in the worlds of modern art and radical politics is framed for the first time within the full spectrum of the historical and cultural influences that shaped her. Narrated by Rita Moreno. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
2005; directed by Amy Stechler; English; 90 minutes; not rated.

This screening also celebrates the unveiling of a new Frida Kahlo piñata by the Center’s Art Museum. The Piñata Exhibit (Sure To Be a Smash Hit!), on display in the museum through the spring of 2018, celebrates the popular art form with works from Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada, and Texas, as well as New Mexico, and is continuing to add new works throughout its run. The newest addition, the Frida piñata, pays homage to the beloved artist in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
