Description
The light and passions of Mexico illuminate every moment of this sensual, hypnotic and hauntingly beautiful film about the life of Italian-born photographer and revolutionary Tina Modotti. Focusing on her years in Mexico in the 1920s, the Genie award-winning director of Shadow Maker paints the portrait of an extraordinary woman's transformation from a silent screen actress, bohemian lover and charismatic subject of Edward Weston's camera, to an acclaimed photographer, an infamous lover, and a deeply committed political activist and revolutionary. Weston and Modotti's starkly dramatic photographs dissolve to lush reenactments, sun-drenched Mexican landscapes, and tumultuous scenes of the Mexican revolution, as excerpts from her letters, Edward Weston's daybooks, and the words of artists and revolutionaries propel us through her intimate thoughts and her increasingly complex and dangerous life - Official Selection, 2002 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.
