The Films of Jane Campion
Films by Jane Campion
49 minutes, Color/BW, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99197
The internationally acclaimed director of THE PIANO, AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE and SWEETIE first displayed her visual flair and dark humor in these award-winning shorts. The compilation includes:

A GIRL'S OWN STORY is about Beatlemania, the sixties and growing up. Some stories about girlhood: where family is strange, adutlhood lonely, and innocence perverse.

PASSIONLESS MOMENTS is a series of wry vignettes: Sean and Arnold Not Speaking; Scotties, Part of the Grand Design of the Universe; Angela Eats Meats, Ironing on Sunday; and others...

PEEL takes place on a hot Australian summer's day, a recalcitrant, freckled, red-headed family of three go on a Sunday drive in the country. Their outing results in an intrigue of awesome belligerence. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.


Passionless Moments: Best Experimental Film, American Film Institute

    "A beautifully photographed, sharply drawn drama...A lovely debut which will be compared to Jane Campion's later work but will certainly live up to the comparison."
    Ann Golden
    Cinema Femmes

    "These deceptively fragile-looking and tough-minded short films reveal familiar power plays from multiple points of view, punctuated by telling close-ups. A promising young director's take on the origins of narrative."
    Amy Taubin
    Top 10, Village Voice
