‘This is a short song of praise to introduce Miro Bilbrough, who I first met when she conducted a long interview with me for book publication. It was simply the best, most down to earth, irreverent and revealing of any I could remember reading. Sometime after this I asked her to write the production notes for The Piano. I chose her in particular because I knew her to be a writer and a poet, with a wide-ranging and very genuine love of cinema, rather than simply a film journalist. The qualities of her imagination—surprising and penetrating—and an abundance of initiative make her a lively and extremely promising creative entity.’
- Jane Campion, 20 June 1994
