There will be lots to do this Australia Day. Things that are Australian like barbeques, beers, playing two-up and apparently eating lamb. To add to the great Australian way of life, Mu-Meson Archives will be screening The Set – a 1969 Australian film about the life of the “arty set” in Sydney. There will be an in-depth exploration of homosexuality, nudity and “campy moments” as listed on the Mu-Meson website. In 1953, the beach scene in From Here Till Eternity was considered scandalous. If only they’d witnessed Aussie television actress Hazel Phillips rolling around on the sand confessing her love for other women. Starring the illustrious Sydney drag queen Ken “Kandy” Johnson, get set for The Set – a real Aussie treat on Australia Day.

Jan 26, Mu-Meson Archives, cnr Parramatta Rd & Trafalgar St, Annandale, $10, 7.30pm, 95172010, mumeson.org
