Unique pocket guide to the work of one of the few women film-makers working today who has managed to create a unique body of work on her own terms. The films she has chosen to make could only have been made outside the studio system, yet Campion attracts A-list Hollywood stars to appear in her films, which continue to have strong independent women at their core. Covers all Campion's major films, surveys her career - from her Palme D'or-winning short Peel' to her most recent feature 'Holy Smoke' - and examines the impact her career in anthropology has had on her work.'
