The Road to Patagonia

8:00PM SATURDAY 16 JUNE

The Road to Patagonia is a stunning, intimate, unflinching exploration of the human condition and the more-than-human world. Shot around the globe over 16 years, it’s a spectacular love story, a breathtaking paean to the natural world, and a heartfelt plea for our collective survival. 

The verité narrative begins with director Matty Hannon’s solo motorbike quest to surf the entire west coast of the Americas. Deep in the wilderness, his plans fall unexpectedly to pieces. On the cusp of quitting he meets the woman of his dreams, permaculture farmer Heather Hillier, who sells her property to buy a bike so they can ride south together. Their journey is equal parts wondrous and challenging, as they traverse 50,000 kilometres, swap their motorbikes for four charismatic horses, and meet extraordinary people.
