Hello friends of Hive, today I will talk about the biographical film of Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo. Who was born in Coyoacán, Mexico, 1907. Mexican painter. Although she moved in the environment of the great Mexican muralists of her time and shared their ideals, Frida Kahlo created an absolutely personal painting, naive, innovative and deeply metaphorical at the same time, derived from her exalted sensitivity and from various events that marked her life.

During the months that she was shown in bed, it is when Frida learns to paint to distract herself from the confinement and the terrible pains she felt. Unable to get up from her bed, she asks her parents to place a mirror on her bed, and to make her an easel that allows her to paint herself while lying down. Her paintings show her two dualities; her escape to a happy reality (her dreams of loving her and becoming a mother), and her impotence, her frustration at her terrible reality and her sorrows.

This accident leaves serious consequences in Frida's life, which would persist throughout her life. Like the inability to have children and the multiple operations she would undergo for the rest of her life, which would cause intense and terrible pain.

Durante los meses que estuvo mostrada en la cama, es cuando Frida aprende a pintar para distraerse del encierro y los terribles dolores que sentía. Ella sin poder incorporarse de la cama pide a sus padres le coloquen un espejo sobre su cama, y le fabriquen un caballete que le permite estando acostada pintarse ella misma. Sus pinturas muestran sus dos dualidades; su escape a una realidad feliz (sus sueños de amor y de convertirse en madre), y su impotencia, frustración ante su terrible realidad y penas.

Este accidente deja graves secuelas en la vida de Frida, que la persistirían durante toda su vida. Como la incapacidad de tener hijos y las múltiples operaciones a la que se sometería durante el resto de su vida, y que le causarían intensos y terribles dolores.

The film deals with her stormy love / hate relationship with the muralist Diego Rivera, her one true love, as well as her love affairs with men and women. Among them the most famous lover of her Leon Trotsky.

This film shows us the fragile side of a human Frida, strong and with convictions ahead of a time when women had no opinions, her duty was to have children, take care of the home and they were only the shadows of their husbands. She is influenced by the Mexican nationalism of her time and shows it in her paintings, using traditional pre-Columbian colors, and showing it in her way of dressing.

La película trata su relación tormentosa de amor/odio con el muralista Diego Rivera, su único y verdadero amor, así como sus aventuras amorosas con hombres y mujeres. Entre ellos su amante más famoso León Trotski.

Este film nos muestra el lado frágil de una Frida humana, fuerte y de convicciones adelantadas a una época en donde las mujeres no tenían opiniones, su deber era tener hijos, cuidar del hogar y solo eran las sombras de sus maridos. Ella es influenciada por el nacionalismo mexicano de su época y lo demuestra en sus pinturas, usando los colores tradicionales precolombinos, y mostrándolo en su manera de vestir.

Many of Frida's paintings were considered surrealist, a movement that with Salvador Dalí was beginning to manifest itself at that time. She was always annoyed that her works were considered surreal, to which she stated:

"I was taken for a surrealist. This is not correct, I have never painted dreams, what I have represented was my reality." Frida Kahlo.

Muchas de las pinturas de Frida fueron consideradas surrealista, un movimiento que con Salvador Dalí comenzaba a manifestarse en esa época. Ella siempre le molestó que consideraran sus obras como surrealistas, a lo que manifestó:

"Se me tomaba por una surrealista. Ello no es correcto, yo nunca he pintado sueños, lo que yo he representado era mi realidad." Frida Kahlo.
