Cutting Edge: Katie: My Beautiful Face

Katie was a model and a budding TV presenter, a 24-year-old who had a glowing future ahead of her. But in 2008 a vicious acid attack destroyed her face, and with it her career and her life as she knew it. More than a year on, and having undergone countless operations and round of physiotherapy, she chose to give up her anonymity and tell her own story for the first time.

Including CCTV footage of the attack, this remarkable Cutting Edge film follows Katie as she undergoes pioneering treatment and attempts to re-build her life, while two men stand trial for the horrific assault. In the film, Katie bravely tells her story with compelling frankness, surprising humour and an extraordinary lack of self-pity as she tries to come to terms with rebuilding her life with a new face.
