You wanna get through this? Do as I say.
As George Miller begins plans for the sequel to his 2015 blockbuster, join writer and critic Maria Lewis as she takes us on a trip through the dusty heart of dystopian Australia.
The apocalypse has been and gone – what better way to enjoy it than from behind the wheel of the War Rig?
It's been five years since George Miller took time away from dancing penguins to craft this iconic follow-up to the Mad Max franchise. Filled with memorable characters, fast cars and more than a small dose of feminism, it was the reboot the fans didn't know they wanted.
Join ACMI's resident Fury Road expert Maria Lewis as she drives headfirst into the sandstorm to explore the workings of this film, our fascination with dystopian car culture and more.
