Dame Jane Campion
Loading the player...
Trailblazing director Jane Campion is the only woman to have won the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. What’s more, she is one of only four women ever nominated for the Best Director Oscar since the first Academy Awards in 1929 (in 1994 when she was nominated for The Piano, 348 men and two women had been nominated for Best Director!).
She won an Oscar in 1994 for Best Original Screenplay for The Piano. Campion’s films have all been from a female point-of-view – she is a role model and an inspiration for women filmmakers around the globe.
In this interview recorded just before the 1994 Academy Awards, Jane Campion talks to Ian Fraser about the Oscars, filmmaking, feminism and Hollywood.
