What is beauty?
For International Women's Day 2018, I approached the talented Anna Ginsburg to make a film about the changing perceptions of female beauty throughout the ages to launch a new CNN Health series about beauty. It's a subject that means a lot to Anna and she had been working on a similar idea as a personal project so this was a wonderfully fortuitous opportunity for us both to work together.
Read the accompanying article on cnn.com 'The history of the 'ideal' woman and where that has left us'.

The film has been incredibly well received by such a huge audience, with over 4.3 million views on CNN Facebook account alone. It's also received a Vimeo Staff Pick and the Best of the Month award.
**Fun Fact** We had Kate Winslet on board to voice the script but it turned out she had been sent an old draft so we couldn't use her recording!
