Storyline

This series follows the exploits of the Bush Mechanics, a group of engaging Aboriginal characters, as they travel through central Australia. In each episode, the Bush Mechanics from the remote Warlpiri community of Yuendumu are presented with a new set of challenges - catching a car thief, getting a nephew out of jail, racing to an outback rock concert and travelling thousands of miles to gather pearl shells for a rainmaking ceremony. As they travel through the desert in their clapped-out vehicles, they solve multiple car problems with wacky and inventive bush repair techniques.

A comedy that's long enough to make its point, but knows when to stop
15 February 2003 | by anakotheSee all my reviews

This short comedy uses wacky humor to comment on so-called global industrialization. Anyone who has had a car in a place where spare car parts are usually unavailable (and very expensive when they are) can fully appreciate the ingenuity or even the magic needed to keep the car running. Even without such experience, most viewers will enjoy the Marx-Brothers type antics as the characters encounter obstacle after obstacle in this "road trip" movie. Kudos to the director for not pounding the idea to death and knowing when to stop.
