“Offering fresh artistic insight, Exhibition On Screen ensures that we are left in no doubt of Frida’s place in art history. Kahlo not only makes herself artist and muse, her visual vocabulary – pain, suffering and love – goes to the heart of the human condition. We are shown Kahlo in her truest form and her own image: emotionally complex and fiercely radical.” – Helen Tope, The Review Hub, London.
“A straightforward overview of Kahlo’s life…peppered with copious commentary from top-notch academic and curatorial talent, as well as family members. A very watchable film about an ever-intriguing figure.” – Andrew Pulver, The Guardian.
