Frida: Naturaleza Viva (1984) (Spanish with sub-titles)
Directed By: Paul Leduc

This film tells the story of art legend Frida Kahlo. Capturing the painter during time in her Coyoacan home, the film follows her turbulent marriage to artist Diego Rivera, her friendships with Leon Trotsky and painter Alfaro Siqueiros, her political involvement, and the many tragedies in her life–including the trolley accident that impacted her spine and left her in constant physical pain. Kahlo overcame such hardship and led a dramatic life, making her a rich biographical subject, and this film does justice to her legacy.
