Motorkite Dreaming

Director: Charlie Hill Smith
Producer: John Cherry
Executive Producers: Marcus Gillezeau, Simon Nasht, Ruth Cross

The ultimate Aussie adventure story. Take four amateur adventurers and two microlights – otherwise known as “motorbikes with wings” – and fly them 4,000 kms across the largest island on earth.

This is the tale of Aidan and Daryl and their fiancées’ dream to pull off a daring feat no-one has ever attempted. Flying from south to north across 5 deserts, the intrepid couples have to navigate tough flying conditions, crocodile-infested swamps, and their own personalities.

Led by two Aboriginal guides, including rock and roll royalty, Carroll Karpany, the flying circus heads deep into the spiritual heartland of Australia. Soaring through twenty indigenous language nations, the adventurers connect with a culture and history thousands of years old.

As pure cinema, Motorkite Dreaming is the ultimate bird’s eye view of the Australian landscape. Whether they are swooping low over Lake Eyre, or across the Great Sandy Desert, this film offers a perspective few can ever hope to see in their lifetime.
