BIKES OF WRATH
Tuesday, October 15 at 7 pm
Q & A w/ director Charlie Turnbull (via Skype)
Cinemapolis and Bike Walk Tompkins kick off a new monthly bike movie series with the Ithaca premiere of BIKES OF WRATH! Stay tuned for more news on exciting up-coming titles!
ABOUT THE FILM:
Five Australians attempt to cycle more than 1600 miles from Oklahoma to California in honor of the westward migration undertaken by ‘The Grapes of Wrath’s’ Joad family. With little money and deep conversations with strangers, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. Add some wicked Aussie humour, wild adventures, and wonderful cinematography, and you’ve got a film that can’t be missed.
The screening will be followed by a Skype Q & A with director Charlie Turnbull.
