the story of cars in Australia
A new Australian documentary series from Paul Clarke, the maker of "Bombora". Cars remade the experience of living on our continent, the fabric of our cities and the intimate power exchanges between sexes, generations and classes. We haven't merely ridden in cars: we've pursued, fetishised and fallen in love with them. Told through terrific characters, never before seen archive and candid car confessions this is the story of us as seen through the windshield. Buckle Up Australia! The music in the series is prominent throughout and includes some of the best artists from Australia as well as overseas including Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, Cold Chisel, The Saints, The Cruel Sea, The Stranglers, The Ramones, The Triffids and many more
