GUARDIAN REVIEW  

WWWW

 

"Richard Kovitch’s documentary is essential viewing for anyone with a passing interest in either British art, second-wave feminism or experimental cinema from the mid-20th century. ." Full Article

PETER STRICKLAND, DIRECTOR, 'IN FABRIC'

“The photochemical summonings and seductive surfaces of Penny Slinger’s work still barely conceal their ferocious capacity to threaten, undermine, and interrogate the viewer’s gaze”.

TIME OUT, LONDON

"Penny who? This is one of those irresistible documentaries that introduces an outrageous, enigmatic figure who should be world-famous outside of the art world. So why isn’t she?An intriguing and entertaining insight into a career that has plenty to say about creativity and patriarchy."

"Edifying, electrifying, overwhelming to the point of disorientating, but bombastic in a brilliantly fitting manner as it presents Penny with the “vagueness and precision of a dream."

O.C WEEKLY - FILMS OF 2018

"Very rarely am I filled with a sense of awe when I watch a documentary, but learning about the artist Penny Slinger and her brand of fiery feminist artwork that explored themes such as BDSM, sexuality and the female body through a thick prism of surrealism made me not only a fan of the British-American artist, but also angry that I hadn’t heard of her sooner."
