Jane Campion is one of the few women film-makers working today who has managed to create a unique body of work on her own terms. The films she has chosen to make could only have been made outside of the studio system, yet Campion attracts A-list Hollywood superstars to appear in her films, which continue to have strong independent women at their core.
This Pocket Essential guide surveys her remarkable career - from her Palme D'Or-winning debut short film Peel to Holy Smoke, and examines in detail the impact her background in anthropology has had in creating the richly textured landscapes against which her films are played out.
