Paula Rego’s fearless art haunts us with its dark reworking of fairytales. This intimate documentary is immersed in political views and perspectives on femininity, leading us from Rego's childhood to what drives her painting today.

We are delighted to be welcoming Paula Rego and director Jake Auerbach for a ScreenTalk after the film, hosted by Gareth Evans.

UK 2009 Dir Jake Auerbach 47 min 

In partnership with the 3rd UK Portuguese Film Festival, Filmville, Instituto Camões and Portuguese Embassy in London.
