Spoke – Em Baker Interview

Melbourne Documentary Film Festival Header


An exciting new film festival arrives in Melbourne this year with the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival taking place from the 9-11th of July. Over the next few weeks we will take a look at various films playing at the festival.

Today we chat to Melbourne’s own Em Baker whose documentary ‘Spoke’ is screening at the festival. ‘Spoke’ is a fascinating look at Em’s journey riding from San Francisco to Florida, a journey made more dangerous by the fact that the United States is one of the most dangerous developed country for cyclists to ride in.  In our interview with Em we talk to her about the dangers associated with her journey and why she decided to embark on such an epic adventure.
