As part of HerStory we will be celebrating female activists with some amazing outdoor screenings at the fabulous Eastbury Manor House, ahead of our women & activism documentary.
On the 25th August we will be honouring Frida Kahlo.
Frida Kahlo de Rivera was a Mexican artist who painted many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country’s popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. In addition to belonging to the post-revolutionary Mexicayotl movement, which sought to define a Mexican identity, Kahlo has been described as a surrealist or magical realist.
We will be screening the 2002 film ‘Frida’ starring Salma Hayek. Tickets will be available soon.
