SBS VICELAND screens an Australian-based doco this week, Australiana: Rage in the Cage.
This is a controlled “burnouts” competition but the doco looks more broadly at mental health issues in regional Victoria.
VICE Australia follows three teenage automotive burnout enthusiasts as they prepare for the Rage in the Cage competition in rural Victoria. Watch as they prepare their cars, meeting their families and spending time with them where they live.
As well as exploring the culture of competitive burnouts, Australiana: Rage In The Cage tracks the experience of teenagers in rural Victoria, and how this niche sport helps them navigate mental health issues, complex family dynamics and the general pitfalls of teenage-hood.
