The Brief
Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of the hilarious new comedy, Joy Ride (which opened in Australian cinemas on July 6), Bastion worked with Roadshow Films to host immerse and provocative pop-up installations in Sydney and Melbourne to promote the film.

The film stars Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All At Once; The Marvelous Mrs Maisel) and Ashley Park (Emily in Paris), is about four Chinese-American friends who bond as they discover the truth of what it means to know and love who you are, while they travel through China in search one of their birth mothers.

The Australian activations in Sydney and Melbourne were free to the public and took visitors on a wild ride exploring themes from the film, bringing to life the themes of identity and self-discovery in an unapologetic way.
