Environmental concerns bring Jane Campion back to the director's chair

Jane Campion has come back out of her self-imposed exile from film to direct a new film called The Water Diary to highlight the United Nations's Millennium Development Goals. Campion said that "The Water Diary and the seven other films in the series are trying to help create public awareness of environmental and humanitarian concerns affecting us right now." According to Campion the film was inspired by her daughter and the children of friends.
"One day I heard them talking about the world they would inherit and how our generation had used up so much of the resources that they will inherit a depleted and plundered Earth where they might not live very long."

I am glad that Jane Campion is thinking about tomorrow. More kiwis should.
