One of the great joys of being a film fan in the internet age is finding and seeing work that otherwise wouldn’t be easily accessible. Case in point, Jane Campion’s 1982 short film “Peel”—which won the New Zealand-born filmmaker the Short Film Palme d’Or at that year’s Cannes Film Festival, making her the first woman to have ever done so—has found its way online.

One of the great joys of being a film fan in the internet age is finding and seeing work that otherwise wouldn’t be easily accessible. Case in point, Jane Campion’s 1982 short film “Peel”—which won the New Zealand-born filmmaker the Short Film Palme d’Or at that year’s Cannes Film Festival, making her the first woman to have ever done so—has found its way online.

Though certainly not as polished-looking as this year’s Sundance Channel miniseries “Top Of The Lake,” Campion had a sure and steady hand directing even in the beginning. Clocking in just under nine minutes, the short follows a family—a father, son and daughter—taking a road trip that grows more uncomfortable and tense. To reveal anymore would ruin the surprise of this self-described “exercise in discipline.”

Watch “Peel” below and catch up with either the Elisabeth Moss-starring “Top Of The Lake” on VOD or grab “Bright Star” on Blu-ray and see how far Campion has developed as a filmmaker. [viaThe Seventh Art]
