BMX Bandits


Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith. With David Argue, John Ley,
Nicole Kidman
Australia 1983, digital video, color, 88 min.

A young, pouffy-haired Nicole Kidman stars as one of three young BMX-ers who get into trouble when they discover a cache of stolen police radios. As any red-blooded Australian kid would do, they try to turn a profit on the loot. Naturally, hijinx, high comedy, and BMX tricks ensue when the kids are pursued by the bad guys. This early 80s Ozploitation classic is seldom seen in today's rather staid BMX environment. Come out and see what all the fuss was about!

Preceded by a "bicycle tour" episode of a classic American TV sitcom. Laugh and cringe as our favorite redhead and her entourage cycle through Europe! Photo courtesy Schlesinger Library.

This program is presented in conjunction with Bay State Bike Week. For information about other Bike Week events at Harvard, please visit CommuterChoice.
