The maker of the films, The Piano and Top Of The Lake, Jane Campion, discussed the flurry of sexual assault scandals in Hollywood lately. During the Screen Production and Development Association Conference in Wellington, New Zealand, Campion said people “believe women” and men are losing their jobs.
When speaking of the outpouring of support for women who accuse men of such crimes, she said, “this is breathtaking. I have never seen anything like this solidarity and call to action in my life.”
According to Campion, the more women speak out against such behavior in the workplace; the fewer women will tolerate it.
Jane Campion became the first woman to win the prestigious Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival with this film, though she was unable to receive the award in person as she was due to give birth. ________________________________ Jane Campion bu filmle, Cannes film festivalinin prestijli ödülü Palme d'Or'u kazanan ilk kadın olmuştur.

The publication from New Zealand, Newshub, reported that Campion “fell out of grace” with Harvey Weinstein many years ago, notably, during the film, Holy Smoke, which was led by Harvey Keitel.
Harvey Weinstein and his company, Miramax, owned and distributed the film and the actions of Harvey put her off. However, she didn’t realize the extent of such behavior.
Additionally, Campion stated that during the 1980’s, the studios and casting directors gave women a limited number of roles to fulfill in popular movies. For example, usually, women would play roles like the “hot girlfriend,” “the loving wife,” or the “slut.”
In the words of Jane, she believes that the election of Donald Trump as the US President is the last breath of the “capitalist macho movement.”
She claimed that never has “macho” behavior been exposed as so “idiotic or dangerous.” As you may already know, Hollywood is flooded in recent weeks with sexual harassment and assault cases, most notably concerning men such as Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK, and Kevin Spacey.
