Frida Kahlo is one of the most renown artists in Mexico history.

Many movies, documentaries and other works portray the artists in many different aspects. Odalys Nanin wrote and starred in the play Frida – Stroke of Passion that portrays the last few days of Frida’s life as she navigates her memories of the love affairs with moving towards death.
