From WildBear Entertainment, FORD v HOLDEN is the follow-up to producer Veronica Fury’s 2020 AACTA-nominated feature Brock: Over the Top. Returning to the realm of motorsport, Fury reflected on the importance of her latest project: “This important essay film embodies the love affair Aussies have with their cars – and covers the fierce tribal rivalry between Fords and Holdens – you were either one or the other!”

The upcoming doco details the history, technology and culture of these rival companies and their impact on the Australian psyche and automotive landscape. Narrated by Shane Jacobson (Top Gear Australia), the film features interviews with industry experts, historians, broadcasters and former employees of both manufacturers.
