MullenLowe, Director Joanna Bailey Explore Ad Stereotypes For UN Unstereotype Alliance
Director Joanna Bailey of Snapper Films teamed with MullenLowe London to make a thought-provoking film highlighting the lazy and harmful stereotypes that still plague advertising.
“The Problem is Not Seeing the Problem” is a powerful film that serves as a stark reminder that the industry has a long way to go to remove these false preconceptions from its output.
It was created for the Unstereotype Alliance, the industry-led initiative convened by UN Women--the lead UN agency on gender equality & woman’s rights.
Snapper EP Helen Hadfield said, “We had a great cast and a lot of fun doing it and are very chuffed to have made it. It was a chance to be a force for good and it’s very nice to be able to do that. No one belongs in a box or sits in a certain category. We have a common humanity. Let’s embrace it.”
