Frida Kahlo's Corset

Synopsis

Short experimental drama that follows a journey of transformation by the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) who wore a series of orthopaedic corsets because of impairment. The film draws on Kahlo's own words and bold painting style. It refutes the picture of Kahlo's life as one of tragedy and suffering.
