A magnificent visual companion to the making of a major feature film by the award-winning director Julie Taymor, about one of the most famous artists and feminists of the twentieth century, Frida Kahlo. This is the true story of Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera; the larger-than-life painters who became the most acclaimed artists in Mexican history and whose tempestuous love affair, landmark journeys to America and outrageous personalities made them legendary. Filmed entirely on location in Mexico, the film traces Frida's life from her unbridled high school days to her death at age 47. This vivid book includes essays by Kahlo biographer Hayden Herrera, award-winning director Julie Taymor, and actress/producer Salma Hayek. There are also interviews with the cast and crew members, and production notes on the locations, music, costume design and art direction. Excerpts from books about FRIDA, reproductions of artwork, a historical timeline and background sketches on the real figures portrayed in the movie. For fans of FRIDA - the artist, the woman and the film - this book is both a fabulous treat and an invaluable collector's item.
Julie Taymor is the two-time Tony Award winner for THE LION KING and one of the most respected directors working in the performing arts today. She previously directed the Academy Award nominated adaptation of William Shakespeare's TITUS.
