In July of 2014 I met Anna Maria Gesine Schreiber, a German actress and Frida Kahlo enthusiast. She was in San Francisco to celebrate Fiestas Fridas. I remember noticing her as the most regal of all the Frida impersonators that day, with her mother at a table with their art pieces for sale. But they were putting out a terrible energy, their stress and insulation made them come off as stock-up and cranky. No body was stopping at their booth, and the ones who did were met by very dry tone from the vendor. Anna Maria's mother Petra was tending the booth, while Anna Maria walked amongst the crowd, seemingly so unapproachable. But I braved the frowns and started talking to them. When I learned they were German I was even more fascinated by them, as it brought me back to my time spent in Berlin. From that moment I became far more tolerant of that serious energy, and soon I realized the two were so stressed by all of the problems they had encountered in San Francisco in their travels. Once I got to know them however, i realized how dedicated they both are to Anna Maria's career and her opportunities to express herself. She seemed more natural, more herself, when she was dressed as Frida. Her normal street clothes were mild earth and neutral colors. It would not suit her to dress colorfully as Anna Maria, but as Frida, as Frida she shines.
