Shot in Australia, USA, Italy, France, and Japan, *Beyond the Wasteland* follows the 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.
