Tina was the most important photographer of the twenties in Mexico. Born in Udine, Italy, at age 16 emigrated to America. There she worked as a model and actress, but when renowned photographer Edward Weston chose Mexico as his home, she learned the trade and made her photographic work.

MUBI's take

A fierce icon of the Mexican Renaissance, the revolutionary photographer and activist Tina Modotti is the subject of this impassioned documentary portrait. A good companion to Laura Mulvey’s essay film Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti, the film tantalizingly explores the nexus of art and activism.
