The Movie ~ ‘From Patient to PinUp’
is a feature length documentary film which starts with my journey of surviving cancer as a young actress, after having half of my face internally reconstructed, and tells the story of The PinUp Gals Project ~ a pinup style calendar & photographic exhibition shot by renowned photographer Mike Owen, featuring myself and 11 other female cancer Survivors and their sexy, surgical scars!
The film focuses on raising awareness about what it is REALLY like to have cancer and lifts the veil on the cultural taboos of scarring, deformity and hair-loss, questioning our pre-conceived ideals of femininity and beauty.
It’s full of bold truths about the reality of cancer. Yet it’s very uplifting, because I believe that cancer is an experience ~ not a definition of a person, and you can quote me on that!
Each woman undergoes the cathartic process of reclaiming herself and her body after cancer through being captured as a beautiful pin-up by one of the world’s finest photographers.
The actual full length feature is still in development but you can view the trailer for the short version which we won an award for below. Yay!!
