Synopsis
Bone Wind Fire is an intimate and evocative journey into the hearts, minds and eyes of Georgia O'Keeffe, Emily Carr and Frida Kahlo—three of the 20th century's most remarkable artists. Georgia O'Keeffe lived and painted in the sun-baked clarity of the American Southwest; Emily Carr in the lush jungled green of the BC rainforests; and Frida Kahlo in the hot and dusty clamour of Mexico City. Each woman had her own response to her environment, to the people that surrounded her and to the artistic or practical challenges she faced in wringing beauty and truth from her particular time and place. Bone Wind Fire uses the women's own words, taken from their letters and diaries, to reveal three individual creative processes in all their subtle and fascinating variety. In thirty carefully prepared and creatively photographed minutes, the film captures the view through the artists' eyes.
