Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be the subject of a portrait? The Honourable Michael Kirby is a seasoned professional in this respect, having had his portrait painted several times and displayed in numerous Australian collections. Michael joins us to share his insider knowledge on how to be a good subject. Perhaps he’ll divulge his top tips for keeping still and how to muster an appropriate reaction when it comes to the big reveal. Afterwards, the Green Mohair Suits will entertain us again and, if you’re feeling brave, there’s our Japanese film series Vengeful ghosts, ghoulish demons.
