Jülide Kural, an actress and theatre director famous for her role as “İpek” in the Turkish TV series Super Dad, wanted to portray Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s life on stage, but was unaware of the events which would follow. Kural and Kahlo came together through spiritual and physical pain, a passion for life and the existence and politics of femininity, but primarily by the challenges of life and their personal struggle with it. This film covers this eight-year-long story, from the rehearsals of the play Frida Kahlo Yaşasın Hayat (Frida Kahlo Long Live Life!) to the present, depicting how Kural embodies Frida’s soul and how similar they have become. Hüseyin Karabey had already smelled the stage with Nefes by Pina Bausch in 2005.
