(2018) Directed by Ishtar Yasin Gutierrez. Maria de Medeiros, Ishtar Yasin Gutierrez, Grettel Méndez. (92 min.)
Mixing reality with reverie, Dos Fridas follows the relationship of Frida Kahlo and her nurse, Judith, who cared for Kahlo at the end of her life. The film uses elements of surrealism, Mexican folklore, and expressionism to capture the complex, turbulent relationship between the two women.
"Ultimately, this film is a love poem to Frida Kahlo and the Mexican culture. It reflects upon resilience through pain, freedom of artistic expression, as well as freedom of sexuality" (Picture Lock).
This film is presented in partnership with the North Carolina Latin American Film Festival and in conjunction with the exhibition Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection.
