Two Fridas

201892 minsSpanish,

Costa Rica - México The film takes its inspiration from the relationship between the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and a fascinating woman who was her personal nurse, the Costa Rican Judith Ferreto. Through the prism of memories, the movie depicts a time in which the present, the past, reveries, nightmares, myths, imagination and reality all mix in the inner world of Judith. In her last day of life, Judith recalls moments of complicity with the painter, which runs the threads of her destiny thereafter.
