Finke: There and Back
Please join us from 6pm for the Opening Night reception.
SELECTED: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2018
The Finke Desert Race is the largest off-road motor race in the southern hemisphere, and Australia's fastest and deadliest off-road motor sport event. The route from Alice Springs to the Finke River looks spectacular, but the track is rife with soft sand and corrugations. Finke is more than a race; it is a way of life. Director Dylan River (a competitor himself) explores the race from within: the contestants, organisers, paramedics, and the drive to win against the desert at all costs. It’s a visual adventure of inspiration and danger, excitement and spills.
Special guests will join us for a Q&A following the screening.
