Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo

Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo

Directed by Ali Ray

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interviews, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.

Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, the film explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo. Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of color and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics, and her cultural heritage.

We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?

Another Round

Another Round

1:57hrs/ NR

Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Magnus Millang, Thomas Bo Larsen, Maria Bonnevie, Lars Ranthe
Director: Thomas Vinterberg
Screenplay: Thomas Vinterberg, Tobias Lindholm

There’s a theory that we should be born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood, and that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students? Initial results are positive, and the teachers’ little project turns into a genuine academic study. Both their classes and their results continue to improve, and the group feels alive again! As the units are knocked back, some of the participants see further improvement and others go off the rails. It becomes increasingly clear that while alcohol may have fueled great results in world history, some bold acts carry consequences.

Set deep inside the frontlines of the crisis in four hospitals, 76 DAYS tells indelible human stories at the center of this pandemic—from a woman begging in vain to bid a final farewell to her father, a grandfather with dementia searching for his way home, a couple anxious to meet their newborn, to a nurse determined to return personal items to families of the deceased. These raw and intimate stories bear witness to the death and rebirth of a city under a 76-day lockdown, and to the human resilience that persists in times of profound tragedy.

Zappa

Zappa

2:09hrs

Written & Directed by: Alex Winter

“We were loud, we were coarse, and we were strange.” Zappa is the definitive new documentary about guitar god Frank Zappa, made by talented British documentary filmmaker Alex Winter (Downloaded, Deep Web, The Panama Papers, Showbiz Kids). It is the first film made with the approval and cooperation of the Zappa estate. Zappa offers an exclusive look at the life of the innovative artist and musician through unfettered access to the Zappa family trust and with tons of never-seen-before archival footage. With an impressive score that combines Frank’s well-known songs with his later classical compositions, Zappa comprehensively chronicles the life and career of an eccentric musical genius. The film also explores the private life behind the mammoth musical career that never shied away from the political turbulence of its time, featuring appearances by Frank’s widow Gail Zappa and also several of Frank’s musical collaborators including Mike Keneally, Ian Underwood, Steve Vai, Pamela Des Barres, Bunk Gardner, David Harrington, Scott Thunes, Ruth Underwood, Ray White and others.

Divine Love

Divine Love

Director: Gabriel Mascaro
Screenplay: Gabriel Mascaro, Rachel Daisy Ellis
Cast: Dira Paes, Julio Machado, Antonio Pastich

It’s the year 2027 in this dystopian, fluorescent Sci-Fi story of Joana (Brazilian star Dira Paes), who uses her bureaucratic job to convince divorcing couples to stay together. Her secret weapon is Divine Love, an evangelical cult she belongs to that mixes in a little swinging and group fun into its more traditional prayers and services. Joana herself can’t seem to get pregnant by her own husband, but in an attempt to save her own marriage, she prays regularly at a very unusual religious drive-in, looking for a miracle to help her conceive. Divine Love is an amped-up, sexy and witty take on a future full of dance parties, ritualistic orgies, cults, and fundamentalist Christianity, and a critique of today’s right-wing led Brazil.
