The Screen Guide

An intimate portrait of writer/director Jane Campion and her collaborators at work; a personal and insightful exploration of how, often against all odds, the creative spirit can sing. This documentary follows Jane’s process through the writing, rehearsals, shooting and screening of a six-part crime mystery series. TOP OF THE LAKE is the case in question, but the themes at the heart of its story are common to filmmaking anywhere in the world, or perhaps the artistic process, anywhere, anytime.
