Born in Portugal, Paula Rego is that great rarity a Britain artist with an international reputation. Germaine Greer sees revolution in her work, 'It is not often given to women to recognise themselves in painting, still less to see their private world, their dreams, the insides of their heads, projected on such a scale and so immodestly'. Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate, asserts that she is a key figure who has 'taken her own childhood experiences, memories, fantasies and fears, and given them universal significance'. "Paula Rego: Telling Tales" follows Rego over a period of 12 months. During six interviews she talks with humour and candour to reveal the private stories that are woven into her pictures; she faces her demons, the same demons that form the compulsion to make work which keeps her 'monsters' at bay. The result is an intimate and funny film that allows us to peek into the private world of Paula Rego.
