Profile image for Jane Campion

Jane Campion


Jane Campion is one of the most dynamic — and applauded — filmmakers to emerge from Australasia. Her CV includes Cannes-winning road trip Peel, An Angel at My Table, based on the life of writer Janet Frame, Golden Globe winner The Power of the Dog, and miniseries Top of the Lake. With her twisted settler romance The Piano (1993), she became the first woman to take the top award at the Cannes Film Festival. 

[Jane Campion] has never made an uninteresting or unchallenging film … The Piano is as peculiar and haunting as any film I've seen. Legendary American critic Roger Ebert on The Piano, November 1993
