THE BIKES OF WRATH
Thurs at 7pm
In 2015, five friends from Australia bike from Oklahoma to California - the same route the families traveled in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. The friends did this on a budget of just $420 (the equivalent to the $18 each family had, on average, when they made the same journey during the Dust Bowl). The friends were overwhelmed by the generosity of the people in the states they biked through. During the documentary's editing process, they realized the trek was more about the people they met than the trek itself. Watch the trailer.
