Doco Of The Month: Finke – There and Back

Dir: Dylan River, M, Australia, 2018, 90mins, DCP

Join us for the latest in documentary filmmaking. We’ll be celebrating diverse voices and intriguing personalities, uncovering truths from the exciting to the uncomfortable, and – most importantly – sharing real stories from Australia and around the world.

For the riders, the spectators and the town of Alice Springs, the Finke Desert Race is more than a race.

Narrated by Eric Bana, Finke: There and Back explores what drives the riders to put their lives on the line when they strap their helmets on.

Paraplegic Isaac Elliott is attempting to complete the race that he started a decade earlier. Scruff Hamill, who lives in a shed full of bikes in Sydney, makes the trip to tick off a bucket list event.

Meanwhile, the factory race teams at the head of the field compete to earn the title ‘King of the Desert’.
