02 HELLO

If you were to write a screenplay about your life, what would it be? A comedy? Tragedy? Horror flick? Romcom? All of the above? The best stories are always a little bit of everything, I think, because that’s what life truthfully is: a bit fun, a bit hard, a bit messy, a bit joyful, a bit whatever. Michelle Law (P8) coalesces those truths on to the page and screen and stage in a way audiences can relate to, learn from and erupt into belly laughs about. It’s a rare talent, and one that seems to be resonating – not many people have a hit play showing in Sydney while their TV show streams on SBS. There’s a story of talent, too, behind the success of Ella Fence (P11), although she expresses her truths in song. She’ll star alongside her idol – Kate Miller-Heidke – in Commonwealth Games celebrations next month. How do you express your truth? Is it how you dress (Fashion, P22); what you cook (P19); or with your home (P20)? The trick is, I am told, to work out what your truth is, and then to live it.

THEN & NOW 1950s: State Library of Queensland’s Lifestyle exhibition (P14) includes this poster (right) by the then Queensland Government Tourist Bureau. Its aim was to entice hikers to the hinterland regions of the southeast. Tourism Australia is keeping travel Down Under “cool” by enlisting Chris Hemsworth as an ambassador. Chris and other big Aussie names appeared in a mock trailer for a fictitious reboot of the Crocodile Dundee films (above), last month screened during the Super Bowl to 110 million potential tourists. #BringBackDundee
