The philosophy of individualism is embedded in motorcycling. The desire to be different and unique, is at the root of the motorcyclist’s imagination. Modifying, customizing, and changing bikes is at the very heart of the biker. Custom motorcycle culture has experienced a renaissance in recent years, and what was once a niche subculture now bears a significant influence on the international mainstream motorcycle industry.
‘Oil in the Blood’ is a documentary feature film on the contemporary custom motorcycle culture. The film is directed by life-long biker Gareth Maxwell Roberts and produced by Lucy Selwood.
As part of a pre-release Community Tour for the movie, the Petersen will be offering a screening of 'Oil in the Blood' in our William E. Connor Penthouse. In addition to the screening, please join us to meet the filmmakers. This is a free event, and light refreshments will be served. Standard parking rates apply.
