Documentary ‘Frida’ by Carla Gutiérrez on Prime Video from March 14

07 March 2024

The documentary, which is based on the well-known illustrated diary, letters, essays, and print interviews of renowned artist Frida Kahlo, is described as a “intimately raw and magical journey through the life, mind, and heart” of the artist.

Gutiérrez had unrestricted access to research materials, many of which were never made public, covering more than 40 years of Frida's life.

According to a press release from the producers, "An intensive journey spanning two years, Gutiérrez and her formidable team of artisans, most of whom are women and proudly Latine, gathered together to craft a singular cinematic experience that could be no ordinary art history lesson." "A living portrait emboldened by the magical realism befitting Kahlo’s remarkable life emerges. Yet, her voice ultimately stands supreme, a complex and powerful sound of a multitude of Fridas fearless, seductive, defiant, vulnerable, raucous, and wonderfully alive."
