Finke: There and Back – Newcastle, presented by Harley-Davidson

Event Cinemas
Westfield Kotara, Northcott Drive, Kotara, NSW, 2289

Adventure Entertainment is taking Finke: There and Back on the road, and rides full throttle to Event Cinemas Kotara.

This is the Finke Desert Race and it is a religion.

For the riders, the spectators and the town of Alice Springs, the Finke Desert Race is more than a race. Finke: There and Back delves below the surface to uncover what makes them tick, what drives them 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 fight for pride and to be named ‘King of the Desert’.

In this series of live stage events, the filmmakers and riders hit the stage together to describe in detail why this event is the most-loved race in the country, and why this film is such an important film to watch for anyone who loves motorsports.

Don’t miss your chance to watch Finke Desert Race, one of the most difficult off-road courses in one of the most remote places in the world.

This features special Q&A with Award-winning director Dylan River, and our main characters Isaac Elliot and Scruff Hamill.
