Frida: Viva la Vida ★★★½

I watched this as it did a tour of cinemas in Italy as part of the Torino Film Festival. I have never been taught about Frida Kahlo but was interested in seeing it as I see her as a feminist figure and I wanted to know more about her and her artwork. It didn't disappoint. Her beautiful and haunting artwork was showed in context with different events of her life that caused her to use her artwork as a output of her life. It was incredibly sad to see how traumatic her life was, but incredibly empowering to see how much she made of it and how out of her pain and suffering comes beauty. Viva la Vida.
