Film
(UK)
Kim’s weighty showreel includes commercials, music videos and shorts for the likes of Ikea, Cadbury and Amnesty International. Her This Girl Can campaign with Sport England inspired women up and down the country to forget judgemental internal and external voices to pursue their sporting goals in a celebration of grit, determination and body-positivity.
Ending 2015 on a bang, Kim directed the John Lewis Christmas ad – the first woman to land the hugely sought-after job. At Here 2016, we were lucky enough to hear this esteemed director detail the process behind her noted body of work, talk about some of her upcoming projects, and discuss how to combine advertising with an empowering agenda.
