She has been called the ‘selfie queen of the twentieth century’. Frida Kahlo used the canvas as a mirror in all phases of her turbulent and sometimes tragic life. Using her self-portraits, this documentary examines Kahlo’s life. We are familiar with her look – including that famous unibrow – but what lies beneath the surface of her iconic appearance? Art curators explain the symbolism in Kahlo’s work and explore the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unparalleled lust for life.
