[7/9] Preview: Puro Chingon Social Club presents a free screening of ‘Frida’ at The North Door

The North Door invites movie-goers to their weekly Free Film Tuesday series. Tonight the Puro Chingon Social Club will be hosting the event with a special interactive screening of Frida.

The Puro Chingon Social Club has previously showcased films Mi Vida Loca, Machete and Y Tu Mamá También. Their Latino-themed program and interactive screenings allow audiences to get a more intimate connection with the film. The club was formed by the Puro Chingon Collective, an Austin Art Collective that works in specializing on zines, interactive theater and public art interactions. They’ve created a ChingoZine, which is an art zine that promotes apsiring Latino artists.

Salma Hayek portrays the influential artist Frida Kahlo whose life-altering bus accident transforms her work as an artist and wife. The film vividly chronicles Frida’s transformation as a painter and person through her emotional and physical change. Frida highlights her eminence as a Chicana, activist, artist and person.

Doors open at 7 and the screening starts at 7:30 at the main stage. There will be props, prized and goodies provided! For more information and updates on the event visit the North Door’s website or the Facebook event.
