Jane Campion: bright stars

Richard Kuipers profiles Jane Campion, whose bold and original work has made her one of the most successful and highly acclaimed filmmakers of the last 20 years.

'The overwhelming majority of her heroines are complex, flawed individuals whose strivings to discover and express their individuality put them at odds with the world around them.’

Campion’s latest project is the television mini-series Top of the Lake (2013), out now on DVD.

Read the Jane Campion portrait. It also includes a screenography and stills gallery.
