The incredible, untold story of the British artist Penny Slinger and the traumatic events that led to the creation of her masterpiece, the 1977 photo-romance, 'An Exorcism'. Coming-of-age against a back drop of post-war austerity and the explosion of colour that characterised the 1960s counter-culture in London, Penny Slinger embraced her generation's quest for personal freedom and sexual liberation and channeled these desires into her ground-breaking collages and sculptures. So powerful was her vision that 45 years later her work is still influencing contemporary artists.

'Essential viewing for anyone with a passing interest in either British art, second-wave feminism or experimental cinema from the mid-20th Century' - Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
