Event

THE BIKES OF WRATH
Five Australian friends attempt to cycle 2600 kms from Oklahoma to California in honour of the mighty westward migration undertaken by the Grapes of Wraths Joad family.  Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists explore the novels core themes  migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity  and how the nation has progressed some 78 years after Steinbecks Dust Bowl depiction was first published.  It is through countless acts of generosity from small-town individuals and communities, to desolating encounters with unwanted Americans, that the cyclists experience first-hand the startling parallels of the novel in a country still grappling with immigration, wealth disparity and, ultimately, its own sense of identity.  The Bikes of Wrath couldnt be more timely. Its a funny, heartbreaking, yet ultimately hopeful documentary that opens our eyes to the complexities of America, all while shining a positive light on the nation at a time when the world needs it most.
