THE TRIAL OF TINA MODOTTI

The Trial of Tina Modotti by Carmen AguirreĀ 

“What exactly is the purpose of art in the face of fascism? Can art serve the poor, and if so, how?”

The Trial of Tina Modotti is a one-woman show about the life of the famed working-class, twentieth-century photographer who photographed Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, ran a hospital for the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War (Ernest Hemingway was her ambulance driver and Robert Bethune one of her doctors), and gave her life to fighting the rise of fascism in Europe.
