Topic: Art event: Mirka MORA
Speaker: Felicity Haire

Observations on how this French-Australian artist’s insatiable spirit brought Parisian chic into Australian popular culture. Not only does Felicity draw upon extensive research to paint her portrait of the artist, she will also delight us with her own anecdotes as she knew Mirka personally. This promises to be a very special evening, in English and in French.
Note also that our cine club presentation this month is directly linked to Felicity's talk.

Monsieur Mayonnaise

An epic true story adventure starring artists, werewolves, heroes, Nazis, a comic book & baguettes ….with lashings of French mayonnaise!
Monsieur Mayonnaise is an artist’s epic adventure into his family’s secret past. Australian artist and film-maker, Philippe Mora (son of Mirka Mora), investigates his father’s clandestine role in the French Résistance in WW2 and his mother’s miraculous escape enroute to Auschwitz. Philippe, a Hollywood cult-horror movie director and pop-artist, adopts a Film Noir persona to tell his family’s story.
