Un Retrato De Diego (A Portrait of Diego)

When: Sat., Feb. 23, 8 p.m. 2013

Gabriel Figueroa began this documentary with master Mexican painter Diego Rivera in the 1940s but it wasn't until recently the footage saw the light of day, thanks to Figueroa's son and Rivera's grandson. Working from the original footage's intimate portrayal of Rivera, Gabriel Figueroa Flores and Diego Rivera Lopez crafted a powerful new perspective exploring Rivera the man and painter as well as the sociopolitical impact of his art in the last stages of the Mexican Revolution. Includes Q&A with Flores. Shown in conjunction with Frida & Diego exhibition at the High.

Price: $7
