Jane Campion: my Top of the Lake research involved sneaking into brothels

The crime drama will once again centre around detective Robin Griffin, played by Elisabeth Moss, but this series will move from wild backdrop of New Zealand to Sydney, delving into the world of legalised prostitution.

“Sexual tourism in Sydney from Asia has always really annoyed me because I feel it’s so exploitative of people who don’t have the choices that we have and I felt like it should be something we should talk about or bring out,” said Campion. “The legalisation of brothels is not a simple issue at all. The ownership of someone else’s body is something very powerful to explore.”
