Freep Film Festival: "Detroit Industry And The Ford Motor Company Motion Picture Laboratory"

Diego Rivera is seen at work, accompanied by wife and fellow artist Frida Kahlo, spending nearly a year to create the famed "Detroit Industry" murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts. This rare silent footage — most of which has never been screened publicly — was shot by the Ford Motor Company Motion Pictures Laboratory between 1932 and 1933, providing an invaluable document of the artist at work. Most revealing are the casual moments between Rivera and Kahlo, along with images of the Motor City 80 years ago. The silent film will be accompanied by live music by pianist David Drazin.
