Next Wave Festival: On the Border of Things Pt. II

May 4, 2018 - May 20, 2018

An artist and a fruit picker take o on a road trip. They’re blood, but not close. Similar, yet with very different ideas about life. As they hit the road, you’re invited along for the ride. Presented in three parts across three separate locations, On the Border of Things sees artist James Nguyen share a drive with his uncle, Ai – himself an artist who makes a living by picking fruit in regional Australia. Like James’ parents, Ai attempted to flee Vietnam back in the eighties. But in contrast, free-spirited Uncle Ai isn’t interested in this idea of being the “good new Australian” as they are.

Viewed from the driver’s seat of an old ute, the documentary is a playful and refreshingly candid take on the classic road trip trope.
