Like Janus, the two-faced Roman God of beginnings and endings, Jane Campion has two faces of her own. There's the social Jane--all smiles and levity and yearnings to be loved. And then there's the Jane of her films--dark and probing and provocative and bold--a woman more easily confused with David Lynch and Flannery O'Connor than with Jane Pauley. Most of the time, the New Zealand-born director juggles her two faces without much psychological strain.

September 4, 1990 | SUE SCOTT, Scott is a staff writer at the Evening Post in Wellington, N.Z. who specializes in coverage of Maori issues.
Family groups in the entertainment world are common but few have been as large as the 20 brothers, sisters and cousins who make up the Waiwhetu Maori Cultural Group. Southland audiences over Labor Day weekend's opening programs at Angel's Gate and at the Maritime Museum in San Pedro got their first glimpse of the Puketapu and Luke families in traditional Maori dress as they performed songs and dances--including poi dances and the intimidating haka , or war dances.

New Zealand is just south of my Homer, Alaska, home by half a world and one wholeday. The question I most often hear when I tell people this is where I went on vacation is, "Why?" Good question. It's green and gorgeous like 3,000 other green and gorgeous places 3,000 miles closer and, frankly, you can go to Yosemite and do about everything there is to do in New Zealand. So why go there? Well, if truth be told, half a world and one whole day is just far enough from Homer, Alaska.
