Fiona Samuel is an award-winning writer and director for television & film.  

In a three-decade career she has created a body of work that puts the female experience front and centre, from her ground-breaking television drama series The Marching Girls featuring ten young female leads, to an acclaimed trilogy of feature-length dramas Piece of My Heart, Bliss, and Consent.  

Telling the true story of New Zealander Louise Nicholas and her 25-year battle for justice after accusing three senior policemen of rape, Consent won multiple awards and achieved both critical acclaim and deep audience engagement.
