Summary: 'Smoke in the woods': An autobiographical meditation on exile, memory and time. This lyrical sound collage deals with the author's 'milk-bar childhood' memories of '50s Sydney and of the Greek island of Kythera, whose inhabitants have travelled to Australia since the nineteenth century. It also evokes the island's rich presence in art, literature and music, and recalls a significant meeting between the author and his uncle, who never left Kythera but who has held a strong spell over him since his childhood. Performers: Arky Michael, Doris Younan and Anna Kypreos. Producer: Matthew Leonard.
