Manouk's World

International Women's Day was extra special this year at Manouk Media. Not only is Manouk Media's latest documentary about women getting closer, (we just booked flights to the desert for filming in April!!) but we also received this AMAZING portrait of Laura, from Manouk Media's greatest fan and supporter, Rory Craig. What a great way to celebrate International Women's Day 2013!

Thank you Rory, we love you.
