Just one Special Event Screening remains for BEYOND THE WASTELAND’s jaunt around Australia and that’s the QLD Premiere on March 12 at Event Cinemas Loganholme where filmmakers Eddie Beyrouthy (Director/Producer) & Phil Lambert (Producer) will be in-attendance for a Q&A and tickets are On Sale Now.

The MAD MAX film franchise has left a significant mark on modern popular culture. Its dystopian, post-apocalyptic themes and imagery have inspired fans from around the globe to create unique fan art, custom-made machines, and to collect memorabilia of all kinds.

Shot in Australia, USA, Italy, France, Japan, and Germany, BEYOND THE WASTELAND follows fans from around the world who go to extraordinary lengths in the name of MAD MAX as they celebrate 40 years of this global cult phenomenon.

Transporting us into the world of MAD MAX, we explore the eccentric world of the fans, their costumes, and their machines as these oddball fans find their place amongst the MAD MAX community. From the world’s largest MAD MAX gathering in the USA, Wasteland Weekend to Japan’s MAD MAX conventions, and Australia’s own The Search for Max event in Clunes.

BEYOND THE WASTELAND not only celebrates life but the ability to change oneself through passion. The documentary also follows original cast member, Bertrand Cadart as he continues his fight against stage IV leukaemia and travels from his home on the Sunshine Coast to the ‘Wasteland’, the desert location of MAD MAX 2 in Silverton for the last time. This is a truly inspiring documentary.
