The Piano + post-screening discussion

Jane Campion became the first female director to win the Palme d’Or for The Piano, her extraordinary, triumphant masterpiece about a mute woman’s rebellion in a newly colonised, Victorian-era New Zealand. Soundtracked by Michael Nyman’s evocative score, it also won Oscars for Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin in career-defining roles and Best Screenplay for Campion’s typically individualistic, female-centric script.

Event details

The screening on Sun 01 July will be accompanied by a free, informal post-screening discussion led by Kirsty Fairclough, Associate Dean, School of Arts and Media, University of Salford.
