Vincent Ward

Vincent Ward (b. Greytown[?], New Zealand 1956) is a film director and screenwriter. He trained as an artist and made a number of noted short films before his first 'art-house' film Vigil was shown at the Cannes Film Festival. His next film, The Navigator, was four years in the making and won six AFI awards. After the romantic drama Map of the Human Heart there was an abortive attempt to direct and script Alien 3, but his central concept of monks aboard a giant wooden ark in space was dismissed by the film's backers and he left the project. Despite this his next feature moved away from the lower budget of his earlier works for an Hollywood-based $90m feature in 1998.
