The Piano (Friday 15 - Thursday 21 June)

Jane Campion has forged a career around the theme of women on the edge of societal norms, from her feature debut Sweetie in 1989 through to television series Top of the Lake. She became the first female director to win the Palme d’Or (for The Piano in 1993) and continues to blaze a trail as one of the most compelling filmmakers working today.
