5. CINEMA: Frida Kahlo

DATE: 30 October and 1 November
VENUE: Eden Cinemas, St Julians

One of the most enduring and arguably the world’s favourite female artist of the 20th century, Frida Kahlo’s legendary style, lust for life, men, women, politics and her Mexican heritage has made her a ubiquitous feminist icon and style muse to generations. But what do we know of her as an artist? Frida Kahlo was a prolific self-portraitist who used the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her vivid, turbulent and, at times, tragic life.
