Best Biography, Montreal International Festival of Films on Art.

Frida Kaho (1907-54), wife of artist Diego Rivera, is one of the most widely celebrated women artists of the twentieth century. She lived at the political and artistic centre of the Mexican Revolution, but her work is uniquely personal. Many of her paintings reflect the anguish she suffered following an accident when she was sixteen which left her in constant pain and unable to bear children.

Both beautiful and frightening, Surrealist André Breton described her art as 'a ribbon around a bomb'. This portrait was filmed in Mexico, particularly at the Blue House in San Angel where she lived, and provides a compelling visual survey of her life and career.

Extras include an information booklet, picture gallery and trailers.
Available in English, French and German languages.

Art Lives, from Arthaus, is a powerful and arresting series of documentaries on artists and art movements released for the first time on DVD in the English language.
