This beautifully filmed program looks at the wall paintings of some of the most famous Mexican muralistsDiego Rivera, Juan OGorman, José Clemente Orozcoand at the work of Luis Barragán, one of the greatest Mexican architects of the 20th century. Their common medium is the wall. The muralists sought to return art to the people, by putting it on the walls of public buildings, just as it had been in the days of their Mayan forefathers. Barragán embraced a modernism imported from Europe, but developed a style that echoes with memories of ancient times. Both the muralists and Barragán used the wall to create something distinctively new and vital, but they all found their guiding force in the roots of Mexican art and culture, in traditions grounded in the pre-Columbian era.
The works of Frida Kahlo, one of the 20th centurys most prominent artists, are included in museums and private collections the world over. This documentary incorporates archival material, readings from journals and letters, and interviews with friends and scholars to retrace the life and work of one of Mexicos most highly recognized painters.
