1924. Berlin, Germany. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, traveling to Germany to connect with her father’s German/ Jewish roots visits Berlin for the first time to experience the communist inspired Proletarian Theater Movement. Late one evening, Frida finds herself meandering the streets of Berlin. She is searching for something to satisfy her curiosity, although unsure of what this is, Frida finds herself at the well-known La Garconne nightclub, where the infamous queer chanteuse Anita Berber is performing onstage as she walks in. Frida is moved and mesmerized. She makes a promise to herself that she will not go home alone this evening, and that she will only go home with Anita.
Shot like a silent film from the 1920s, ‘Frida & Anita’ is a political fantasy, intersecting the lives of two queer radicals — Frida Kahlo and Anita Berber — who both left a huge dent in history, and clearly inspired artists who came after them. They both ruptured the immediate sociopolitical landscapes around them, defining, breaking, and re-defining the social classes with awkward grace and impenetrable energy, leaving what became both an art historical and sociopolitical legacy of work.
