The Bikes of Wrath is a 2018 documentary film about five Australians who attempt to cycle 2600 kilometers from Oklahoma to California in honor of the westward migration undertaken by the fictional Joad family in the classic John Steinbeck novel "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.
