Oscar-winning Kiwi shoots ANZ video

Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

Celebrated Kiwi filmmaker Jane Campion – who won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for 1994’s The Piano – has shot a short video for the launch of ANZ’s Wise Women website and #equalfuture social media campaign.

The Wise Women campaign turns a spotlight on the female/male pay gap, which in turn fails to prepare women adequately for retirement. It was run out of ANZ’s Australian HQ, and will not screen on TV – the bank’s intention is for women to share it via social media.

The stars of Campion’s film are a group of young girls (including an wonderful eight-year-old Japanese karate black belt) who demonstrate that girls’ brains develop faster than boys – but women still earn almost 50% less superannuation than their male counterparts.

The bank will donate $1 to an international women’s development charity for every post at #equalfuture, up to a maximum of $A100,000.
