Screening: ‘The Bikes of Wrath,’ with filmmaker Charlie Turnbull. Darkside Cinema, 215 SW 4th St. Corvallis. 12 p.m. $5. Join Darkside Cinema for a screening of the 2018 BANFF People’s Choice Award-winning film “The Bikes of Wrath.” The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Charlie Turnbull. Five Australians attempt to cycle 2600 kms from Oklahoma to California in honour of the westward migration undertaken by The Grapes of Wrath’s Joad family. 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.

Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than twenty years, she was host and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth, and became the subject of one of the best-known paintings of the twentieth century, Christina’s World.
