A very personal account of one family and its links across two continents and three generations, despite political divides. In Capitalist Drive, Barbara Chobocky turns the camera on her own extended family to discover how ordinary people cope with social and personal upheaval. She explores the parallels between her enterprising cousins negotiating the first years of free-market democracy in the Czech Republic and the post-war migration of her immediate family to what her father called 'the wild west' – a new life in Australia. Along the way, she uncovers stories of love and loss, and a rather eccentric attachment to cars.

(2004, 55 mins) A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with Documentary Films. Produced with the assistance of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
