19.30 screening of Sweetie, 1989, directed by Jane Campion (96') 

Jane Campion, the Aotearoa New Zealand director and two-time Oscar winner for The Piano and The Power of the Dog, made her feature film debut in 1989 with the tragicomedy Sweetie.

Eccentric Dawn, nicknamed Sweetie, thinks she is an artist because her father once told her so. Whilst Kay, her superstitious sister, believes she will end up with her boyfriend Louis because a fortune teller told her this. When Dawn disrupts her introverted sister’s life and relationship it is the beginning of a chaotic downward spiral, telling a complex tale of love, repression and disintegration within a family.

Should Jane Campion herself respond favorably to our email, her 1986 Cannes award-winning short film Peel, of which not even the Cinématèque Suisse holds a copy, will also flicker across our screen. Campion did not believe that she would win at the time and therefore stayed away from the Palme d'Or award ceremony. She only learned that she did win the prestigious trophy the following day from a paparazzo photographer who had snapped a picture of her on the Croisette.

The film is shown in its original language with English subtitles.

looking forward to some extra cosy vibes
