Sweetie 15

Part of Women Aren't Funny
Jane Campion, Australia, 1989, 99m.

The film will be screened with Descriptive Subtitles.


The screening on Wednesday 26 June, will be introduced by film critic Laura Venning.


Though she went on to create a string of brilliant films, Jane Campion should also be remembered for her stunning debut feature, Sweetie, which focuses on the hazardous relationship between the buttoned-down, superstitious Kay and her rampaging, devil-may-care sister, Sweetie - and on their family's profoundly rotten roots. A feast of colourful photography and captivating, idiosyncratic characters, the tough and tender Sweetie heralded the emergence of this gifted director, as well as a renaissance of Australian cinema, which would take the film world by storm in the nineties.


Laura Venning is a film critic from London specialising in feminist cinema, queer cinema and folk horror. She has written for BBC Culture, Empire magazine, Little White Lies magazine and the Curzon Journal. She has contributed to critics’ surveys such as Sight and Sound’s historic Greatest Films of All Time poll in 2022 and has introduced films at the BFI Southbank.
