Remember "The Grapes Of Wrath" from high school English? Weighing in at 450 plus pages, this heavyweight Steinbeck novel tracing the Joad's shoestring journey from Oklahoma to California during the dustbowl is a mouthful. Teenage you might have hated the book, but these four young Australian filmmakers hope you'll give the novel a second chance.

In fact, they're so inspired that they've already retraced the 1,600-mile journey on bikes for their documentary on the warm rural America they met titled Bikes Of Wrath. We're so fascinated with their journey we invited them onto the show for a Skype interview with RightThisMinute hosts.
