Angel of Fire: Kahlo, Mexico, and Film
July 31–August 30
Phyllis Wattis Theater
Angel of Fire presents powerful and provocative films exploring Frida Kahlo’s involvement in the cultural and political landscape of Mexico, as well as her complex personal relationships. It includes work by major international filmmakers (such as Sergei Eisenstein and Luis Buñuel), classics of Mexican cinema, and a sampling of the many documentaries that have taken Kahlo as their subject. Films are in Spanish with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.

Enamorada (A Woman in Love)
Emilio Fernández, 1946, 99 min.
Saturdays, August 23, 3 p.m., and August 30, 1 p.m.
Widely regarded as the “most beautiful face in the history of Mexican cinema,” María Félix was a onetime lover of Diego Rivera who starred in a string of “moustache-meets-mantilla” melodramas in which her strong character is finally overwhelmed by a still stronger male. Enamorada follows the same theme, but on a lighter note—it’s a Mexican Taming of the Shrew. A revolutionary general rides into her town and executes some token aristocrats before falling for Félix.

Tickets are available at the museum (no surcharge) or through (surcharge applies).

$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium). Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
