About the Film

Five Australians attempt to ride from Oklahoma to California in honor of the westward migration undertaken by the Joad family in “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 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 filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.

The Bikes of Wrath trailer showed in Portland at Filmed by Bike 2017, and we’re thrilled the final film is finally here.
