Directed By Ali Ray

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the
life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo.
She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror
through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life.
Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words,
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not
a life defined by tragedy.
Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with worldrenowned
Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores
the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal
canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real
Frida Kahlo.
Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her
works we examine how great an artist she can be considered.
Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on
screen, 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, men, women,
politics and her cultural heritage.
