Introduced by Teresa Arcq, co-curator of the 2012 LACMA exhibition "In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States."

In 1939, French Surrealist painter/poet Alice Rahon (1904–1987) and her Austrian husband fled fascist Europe and moved to Mexico, where they were received by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. There, Rahon published three volumes of poetry inspired by nature, travels, and her love affairs with poet Valentine Penrose and artist Pablo Picasso, among others. This documentary explores Rahon´s involvement with the Surrealist movement and her vibrant contribution to Mexican art.
