Frida Kahlo: Portrait of a Woman.

This is an especially interesting video featuring the work of Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. It reviews the life of this remarkable woman, making clear references to the motives she had for her choice of subject matter. It also addresses her relationship with Diego Rivera, one of Mexico's most well-known and respected artists. The video is quite direct in discussing all aspects of this relationship, many of which touch on sensitive issues that demand a high level of maturity on the part of the viewer. Kahol's paintings, featured throughout the program, are disquieting on many levels. Production quality is very high and the content leaves one satisfied that a thorough and sensitive job has been accomplished in presenting the artist's life and work. Recommended for secondary viewers.
