  • Year2016
  • Duration60 min

The extraordinary life of British-Mexican artist Leonora Carrington is chronicled by director Teresa Griffiths in this study of the "lost" surrealist. Interspersed with experimental animation and tableaux, the film celebrates a woman whose artistic contribution has been historically overlooked. Struggling against misogynistic pressures at home, she eventually found a spiritual kinship in Mexico.
