!"#$%&'() CIAO’S PICKS Transition: Renee Dixon STORIES ABOUT HOPE 20 — 23 JULY It’s not often that we hear conversation about refugees that reflects the lived experiences and perspectives of these voices. An exhibition in the Inner West is hoping to do just this, after three successful exhibitions in NSW and Victoria. Partnering with Road to Refuge, a not-for-profit community organisation, Renee Dixson, the exhibition’s creator and producer, set out to construct a showcase that represents her own journey with her partner, Tina, of seeking safety in Australia. ‘Stories about Hope’ celebrates the courage and individual identity of people who have undertaken diverse journeys to Australia through photography and short films. Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Pidcock St, Camperdown FUTURE DISTANT HISTORY 21 — 29 JULY Keen to exercise your intellectual and creative mind by examining the intersection of “invasive capitalist endeavours and the resultant environmental and cultural scars”? Hayden Fowler’s art exhibition is the perfect one for you, as he presents his latest body of works, Future Distant History. The exhibition explores Australia’s colonial history and the impact of exploitative industrial practices on the environment. The poetic images and objects include an installation of skeletal bleached bone. Also in the gallery is a second exhibition, Profiteer Chic, by Penelope Cain, which explores narratives of historical colonialism in our country. Artereal Gallery, 747 Darling St, Rozelle SYDNEY ROYAL WINE SHOW SATURDAY 29 JULY, 2-6PM Head down to the Sydney Royal Wine Show for an afternoon of wine, wine and more wine. Along with fine food and great music, join wine connoisseurs at one of the most prestigious wine shows in Australia, which dates back to 1826. Usually hosting around 500 patrons, visitors have the opportunity to taste and judge selections from 2,200 entrants, judging the wines on variants including complexity, fruitiness and balance. The afternoon is also an opportunity to learn a thing or two more about wine thanks to their Expert Judges Tours, who will guide you and your palate through the thousands of wines. Howie Pavilion, Riverina Avenue, Sydney PHOTOGRAPHING OUR MANGROVES SATURDAY 5 AUGUST, 11AM Ever wondered what interesting creatures are living alongside us in the Inner West? The mangrove habitat on the foreshore of Canada Bay is a sanctuary, playing an essential part in maintaining the health of our aquatic ecosystem. They act as coastal kidneys, filtering water and buffering strong tides to prevent erosion. Come and learn from passionate professionals about how to take the perfect nature photograph at just the right angle, and the importance of mangroves to our environment. Additional walking tours are on 22 July, 12 August and 16 August. Ron Routley Oval, Norman Street, Concord West BAY RUN SUNDAY 6 AUGUST, 8AM The Inner West’s Bay Run is the envy of the city, a beautiful reminder that nature can still be found amidst the hustle and bustle. The Bay Run fun run aims to bring people of all ages together for a day of health, fun and exercise. The 8km run (or walk) around Iron Cove makes for a great warm up race if you’re thinking of participating in the City to Surf or Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. There is also a 2km Primary School Challenge with great prizes on offer for the kids. A great way to enjoy the water, get fit and spend time in our beloved Inner West community. Race you there!

MOVIES Long strange trips and spooky tales Can’t get to Europe this year? Sure you can, at your local art-house cinema at least. And then be spooked and throughly baffled too PA RIS CAN WAI T ★★★ Save your airfares and still see all the pretty bits of France from Cannes to the Seine? Sure, cinematic travelogues may not be the same thing... But at least in Eleanor Coppola’s dramatised road trip – in which Anne (Dianne Lane), the neglected wife of a hot shot movie producer (Alex Baldwin), gets to go on a grand tour of the country’s top sites and Michelin-rated bistros with a romantic Frenchman (Arnaud Viard), there’s the added frisson of suspense… Why does his car breakdown at remote and impossibly pretty picnic spots and not on some hideous autoroute? Why does he keep running into ex-girlfriends? And need to use her credit card? When will they get to a hotel that only has a single room with one double bed? The answers hardly matter in a film so enchanting, slyly surprising and ravishingly gorgeous to look at. And if you really need to ask any of them in the first place, maybe book that flight instead. PG from July 20. THE TRIP TO SPAIN ★★★★ After the last Trip (to Italy, Steve Coogan and Rod Brydon’s Seduction is on the menu second after the Lakes) it was pretty clear sequels were in the bag. When will they get to Australia? Surely Michael Winterbottom’s unlikely hit series will stretch to our shores, though it has to be said – this is cinema’s oddest franchise. And what a formula! Two middle-aged blokes slicing each other up with their razer sharp wit (not always amicably), trading pop culture anecdotes spiced with duelling celebrity impressions (Mick Jagger doing Michael Caine – this is getting tricky) and then having sing-a-longs in the car. How could that possibly work? Maybe because both are so effortlessly hilarious, producing the sort of uncontrolled laughter that will have tears rolling down your checks. That Spanish dishes served with schadenfreude said, some of the other bits, like Coogan having his professional vanity pricked once wife makes it sounds like pretentious again, the ruminations on ageing and male festival twaddle (“a cosmic journey, pride have probably reached their limits, and confronting life’s ineffable questions and the culinary porn on display this time around the enormity of existence”), and yeah, almost seems perfunctory. But fans of the well, ok... It’s unique for sure, audacious first two won’t be disappointed, and anyone too - difficult (maybe), but totally new to these very strange road trips is in for a fascinating, entrancing and hypnotically delectable treat. M from Aug 3. watchable throughout. As to what it all means, I dunno... There may be a clue A GHOST STORY★★★★ there in a dinner party guest’s extended “Well, I’ve never seen anything like THAT before!” my friend exclaimed after the preview.

Panic-stricken, Anne insists her loyal maid, Maria (Rossy de Palma), disguise herself as a mysterious Spanish noblewoman to even out the numbers. But a little too much wine and some playful chat lead Maria to accidently endear herself to a dandy British art broker (Michael Smiley). Their budding romance will have Anne chasing her maid around Paris and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.

But it’s fascinating too. SAMI BLOOD Amanda Kernell’s stirring drama, which follows the fate and fortunes of a bright 14-year-old Sami girl in northern Sweden screened to great acclaim at the Sydney Film Festival this year, and has picked up multiple festival awards. It’s as stunning as it is disturbing. THE MAN Simon (Borgen’s Søren Malling) is “the man”, a hot-shot Copenhagen gallery darling with a Jeff Koons-like income and ego to match. Fabulous fun to watch him meet his match – his own son. TOM OF FINLAND Dome Karukoski’s handsome biopic of a legendary Finnish gay erotic artist is not only for nostalgic fans of fleshy and filthy 70s artworks featuring muscular and well endowed men in leather. Though they might enjoy it most! THE OTHER SIDE OF HOPE Aki Kaurismäki uses the European refugee crisis as a -8- backdrop for a humanistic feel-good story, told with his characteristic bone-dry humour and a dash of dark Nordic melancholy. There’s some superbly silly scenes all populated with wry expressionless characters who say little but smoke incessantly. There’s plenty of time left, the festival run until Aug 6.

IN THE KITCHEN !"#$%&'($)*%)+',-".' Warming your stomach in winter I first made a version of this recipe about 15 years ago. I saw it in a magazine, fell in love with its honesty and simplicity and have been making it for my loved ones ever since. I’ve changed it up a bit since that first time all those years ago – although I suspect that it’s this rustic, almost ‘throwntogether’ quality that is part of its charm.

Performing this year at Ferragosto, Cosima shares her go-to post-show snack and her grandmother’s Broccoli Frittata recipe. You performed at Ferragosto 10 years ago, what has changed in the Inner West since then? The biggest change has been the influx of people to the area.

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS !"##$%&'(& SUNDAY 20 AUGUST, 10AM — 4PM Great North Road, Five Dock will come alive with the tastes and sounds of Italy on Sunday, 20 August 2017 between 10am and 4pm. With its roots strongly grounded in the City of Canada Bay’s Italian culture and heritage, the annual Ferragosto festival will be a feast for the senses with the unmistakable aromas of food, beautiful dance demonstrations and authentic music, as the community marks Sydney’s premier Italian festival’s 20th anniversary. Ferragosto began in 1998 as an initiative of Five Dock’s Main Street Committee. The event was originally held in the Garfield Street car park for the first few years but as it grew, it moved to Great North Road. It has now expanded from Queens Road to Lyons Road – approximately 800 metres in length plus most side streets. As the demand, size and costs of the event increased, so did Council’s involvement. The festival preserves its roots in the strongly-Italian local community, with considerable support and interest from local businesses, entertainers, community organisations and residents. The event draws a mixed crowd with close to 60 per cent of attendees coming from the City of Canada Bay. Here’s what some of the original members have to say: CR TONY FASANELLA I remember the first ever Ferragosto – local businesses set up a few tables in the car park, more of a market than a festival. CR MICHAEL MEGNA Taking up 800 metres of Great North Road, each year it’s great to see this wonderful Italian festival attract people from the local area as well as much further afield. JOE DI GIACOMO, PRESIDENT, FIVE DOCK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE It all began as a way of drawing people to Five Dock to support local businesses – look how many people come now! -12-

!"#$%&'()*++(,-". REFUSING SINGLE USE PLASTICS COMMUNITY Scientists estimate that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. This shocking figure is one of many outlined by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in a report on the new plastics economy, released in January 2017. The study revealed that 32 per cent of the annual production of plastic is lost to ‘leakage’, most of which goes into the ocean, with 40 percent going to landfill and only 14 percent collected each year for recycling. Leakage of plastic into the ocean occurs at a rate of one garbage truck-full every minute. Plastics we use for just a few minutes at a time last forever in our environment. Being non-biodegradable, plastic forms islands in the sea and snags in the stomachs of marine life. Plastic is everywhere – our veggies are wrapped in plastic and our bins are lined with plastic. There is a plastic lining in about 99 per cent of disposable cups used for takeaway coffee. Because of its abundance, plastic may seem difficult to avoid. But it is possible, and it’s time for us to take on the challenge. Plastic Free July is a worldwide challenge that aims at avoiding single use plastics. The initiative focuses on simple, effective solutions to the problem that each of us can take on at home. You can: · Use a Keep Cup · Line your bin with newspaper instead of plastic bags · Store your food in recycled glass jars, a bowl with a plate on top, or wrap herbs and cheeses in fabric · Use re-usable containers to pick up your take-away food · Buy non-synthetic clothing (eco-cotton or hemp) instead of plastic based clothing (polyester or nylon) There are more tips online at http://www.plasticfreejuly. org/ or register to formally take on the challenge. You can also attend one of the Plastic Free July workshops organised by The Big Drop Collective and held at Addison Road Community Centre, Marrickville, on Saturday 22 July. /0'#"(1&$%0*. Marrickville Hospital After standing empty for 25 years, Marrickville Hospital, located on the corner of Marrickville and Livingstone Roads, will be redeveloped into a residential community space, including a new library and park. Marrickville Hospital opened on 10 June, 1899, with ten beds and two children’s cots to meet the needs of the growing community. Its service was purely charitable, with an emphasis on providing care for the poor. Until the early 1920s, the hospital was well used and overcrowded, with insufficient beds to treat patients. As a result, the hospital underwent several rounds of major expansion and by 1935 it possessed 91 beds and treated 7237 patients a year. The hospital began to decline in the 1960s, however. Even though there was strong support from the public and community, government funding cuts in the 1970s and the development of new hospitals in the Sydney’s west led to the hospital’s eventual closure in 1991. It has remained unused ever since. Now, some parts of the site are heritage-listed and it is an iconic building in the local area. After operating for nearly a century, its contribution to providing health care and nursing services for the local community cannot be denied.

The centre is one of the leading and most innovative therapy centres in Australia and is changing the way children with disabilities learn and grow with its integrated range of intensive programs and innovative equipment. The state of the art inclusive therapy centre specialises in physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology. It is a centre for children of all abilities and is renowned for the use of the transdisciplinary model – where all therapists involved in the care of a child meet and work with the parents and child as a unit. “When I was planning Therapies for Kids, children with disabilities were classified into ‘conditions’ and agencies would only treat specific disabilities, marginalising children with a disability even more,” says Debbie Evans, Clinical Director of Therapies for Kids. “I strongly believe in inclusion and to do this, we needed to provide a service for children, with no preconception of their ability or reason for seeking therapy.” “I envisaged a space where children of all abilities would be able to interact in one space and with time, the decision was to do this with our therapy gymnasium. Skills in movement, play and communication do not develop in isolation, so we had to provide a suitable environment for all children to engage with. It is so rewarding to see how successful Therapies for Kids has become and that it is truly a place for all children requiring the services of a therapist,” says Debbie. In the future, Debbie hopes to continue working with committed and enthusiastic therapists pushing the boundaries of their knowledge, equipment and vision to see every child’s potential.
