Open Love NY presents Poly Movie Night, a FREE series of feature films that focus on the portrayal of consensual / ethical non-monogamy in cinema. This month we’ll be at our regular venue, The Bureau of General Services–Queer Division.

Please join us for “Frida” (2002), directed by Julie Taymor and starring Salma Hayek and Alfred Molina.

We’ll meet at 6:30 pm at The Bureau (in room 210 of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center at 208 West 13th Street) for pre-screening socializing and start the movie at 7 pm. The more people come, the more likely we’ll continue the event! The event is free, although a $10 suggested donation to help fund future events is much appreciated.

Synopsis: Despite illness, injury, and life-long pain, Mexican artist Frida Kahlo lived a full and extraordinary life. She and her husband, painter Diego Rivera, both had many other relationships over the course of their marriage. Frida’s doctor told her that Diego “has never been, nor ever will be, monogamous.” Running time: 2 hours 3 minutes.
