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, ĎAn Exorcismí.

Coming- of-age against a back drop of post-war austerity and the subsequent explosion of colour that characterised the 1960s counter-culture, Penny Slinger embraced her generationís quest for personal freedom and sexual liberation, and channelled these desires into her ground-breaking collages, films and sculptures.
