Karen Cunningham

Karen Cunningham has carved out a real niche for herself as a top child wrangler. While a lot of female directors have - understandably - fought hard against the stereotype which suggests they are the natural choice when handling young performers, Cunningham has embraced the opportunities provided by this hackneyed idea.

Far from limiting her, this 'pigeon-holing' has enabled her to create work marked by extraordinarily naturalistic performances and - especially through her empowering work for Barbie - play her part in levelling the playing field for girls.

WORK:
Barbie
"Dads"
We've known for a while that the Barbie world is changing. Having laid the groundwork in 2015's charming ‘Imagine the Possibilities' film, the brand now get the dads involved. "I'm a typical man's man", states dad number one. Not that his daughter is fussed. All that matters is having a dad to play with. What follows is a charming montage of fathers and daughters letting their imaginations guide them.
