Star of stage and screen, Miranda Tapsell will take audiences from Kakadu to Cannes as she chats with ABC Radio’s Rhianna Patrick about her powerful new memoir, Top End Girl.

Writer, producer and star of the box office hit, Top End Wedding, Miranda shot to fame in The Sapphires, Love Child and Doctor Doctor. Miranda and Rhianna look back on a successful career, with insights into movie-making and memoir writing, and open a conversation about the negative narrative that has been curated about Aboriginal people.

As a woman of colour and proud Larrakia and Tiwi woman, Miranda feels she has to push for change. Top End Girl shows us the power of storytelling to reform attitudes and expectations, and that we all need to understand so things can change.
