“I think the world could end and this city would go on unchanged,” says Eli (Brendan Maclean) staring out the car window, driving down Adelaide’s wide arterial roads. The sun sets, casting an orange glow over the flat suburbia. Lights path into the car unobstructed by apartment buildings and hills. The car moves calmly and steadily. This is not a city of traffic.
The family at the heart of Fucking Adelaide – a six-part series out now on ABC iview, stylised as F*!#ing Adelaide – is, like many families from Adelaide, split over state and national lines. Eli lives in Sydney; older sister Emma (Kate Box), in Thailand. The youngest, Kitty (Tilda Cobham-Hervey), has stayed in Adelaide in her childhood bedroom, while she attends art school. “Adelaide actually has a lot to offer now,” she retorts to Eli, with all of the conviction of someone desperately trying to make herself believe what she’s saying.
Creator and director Sophie Hyde never shows us Adelaide city, yet it is a story undeniably of Adelaide, seen only the way locals can. Adelaide is in the skateboarding down wide, empty suburban streets; the sandstone-fronted houses; the backyard bonfires; the way Kitty wears the city, literally, in the jewellery of Naomi Murrell, in the scarves of Julie White.
