The Bikes of Wrath


An Arts Yackandandah - Flickside event.

Multi-award winning documentary about five Australians undertaking a 2600km bicycle journey through the United States. The trip honours the westward migration undertaken by the Joad family in the John Steinbeck novel, The Grapes of Wrath. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of the human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck's seminal novel. The Bikes of Wrath is a unique, funny and insightful documentary series filled with adventure, literature, music and man.
