In Conversation With Virginia Trioli - Peter Greenaway
ABC2  |  November 29, 2009

Welsh-born Peter Greenaway is best known for his filmmaking during the 1980s and 90s, directing visually sumptuous films such as The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover, Belly of an Architect and A Zed and Two Noughts. His films have polarised viewers, garnering international accolades and audience walk-outs. A fearless visionary and provocateur, he rejected narrative storytelling in favour of his trademark exploration of sex and death. Visiting Australia as the keynote speaker for the 2008 Australian International Documentary Conference, Greenaway spoke to Virginia Trioli about his body of work, and also what he's been up to since his last major feature film release in Australia.
