AdvertisementAUCKLAND WRITERS FESTIVAL WAITUHI O TĀMAKI (Event 75)
In the gladiatorial arena of film direction, where women have often been treated as invisible, New Zealand auteur Jane Campion has blazed a pioneering trail. The first woman to win the Palme d’Or for 'The Piano', and the second to ever be nominated for a directing Oscar.
Campion’s latest triumph is 'The Power of the Dog', inspired by Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel of the same name. Winning her a legion of awards, including a Venice Silver Lion, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, an Academy Award and a Critics Choice Award, it’s a powerful exploration of toxic masculinity, and of love, grief and sexuality – all themes that she has explored in a potent body of work that also includes 'Sweetie', 'Holy Smoke', 'An Angel at My Table', 'Top of the Lake', 'Bright Star' and 'In the Cut'.
Returning home, she joins Noelle McCarthy in conversation to discuss her artistic inheritances, guiding principles and preoccupations.
