Presented March 17–19, 2022, as part of Exhibition on Screen, an in-depth look at the world’s most extraordinary art exhibits and the motivation behind them made possible through partnership with Gateway Film Center, the McConnell Arts Center, and Columbus Museum of Art.


About the film: Who was Frida Kahlo? Everyone knows her, but who was the woman behind the bright colours, the big brows, and the floral crowns?

Take a journey through the life of a true icon, discover her art, and uncover the truth behind her often turbulent life. Making use of the latest technology to deliver previously unimaginable quality, we take an in-depth look at key works throughout her career.

This personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works, and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience, and her unmatched lust for life, politics, men and women.

About the filmmaker: Ali Ray began her career in the film industry in 1995 and since then she has covered all bases including producer, director and development. She also considered herself a  journalist, factual tv director and occasional presenter. Ali’s specialist subject areas are popular art history, food, travel and the outdoor industry.
