Film Screening: "Frida"

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month: The Passion of Hispanics in the Arts

  • CostFree

This film is a biopic of the bold and controversial life of artist Frida Kahlo. Set in Mexico City, this visually evocative film traces her lifelong, tempestuous relationship with her mentor, along with her illicit affairs with Trotsky and various women. Her forward-thinking artistic, political and sexual attitudes are explored as we witness a hard-drinking, passionate woman of the early 1900s. Salma Hayek earned an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Kahlo. Dr. Claudia Femenias, Professor of Spanish at High Point University, will give a brief presentation preceding the screening.
