London based artist Sophie Cundale introduces and screens her most recent film After Picasso, God a co-commission between Serpentine Galleries and South London Gallery.

The film sees a woman (played by Cundale) visit a hypnotist to address an unwanted addiction. As part of her cure, objects, people and images are transformed through hypnosis; pain is bought to the surface and removed through analgesia. The title refers to the artist Dora Maar, Picasso’s lover and muse, who after the break-up of their affair, declared: "After Picasso, Only God."
