"Since her indelible 1989 debut feature Sweetie, New Zealand–born Jane Campion has been one of the most distinctive talents in world cinema. The first woman awarded the Palme d‘Or at Cannes—for her Oscar-winning 1993 feature The Piano—Campion makes films that reflect a highly personal and idiosyncratic style, influenced by her background in anthropology and painting, and notable for their visual inventiveness, dark sense of humor, and complex depictions of women and sexuality. For four decades now, Campion has moved freely across genres—family melodrama, gothic romance, literary adaptation, farce, suspense-thriller—and also between cinema and television." - Film Society Lincoln Center (2017)
