Ollin Social Justice Film Series - Frida

For the second year in a row, The Hollywood Theatre and Latino Network are proud to present Ollin: Social Justice Film Series, a series exploring the social justice issues of today.

The 2018 series “Nuestra Voz” features three films about prominent women who continue to shape and inspire our world today: Musicians Selena Quintanilla and Mercedes Sosa and artist Frida Kahlo.


Released in 2002, Frida is a dramatic retelling of artist Frida Kahlo’s private and professional life as an internationally renowned surrealist artist. Set on a global stage in the early 20th century, the movie chronicles Frida’s challenges with her health, sexuality, career and fame. Frida must struggle to maintain her complex identity and individuality amongst a dysfunctional relationship with fellow artist, Diego Rivera. Directed by Julie Taymor, the film stars Selma Hayeck, in an academy award winning performance, as Frida.
