The Screen Guide

Destination Arnold tells the story of two Indigenous women who share a big dream – to make it to the Arnolds – an invitation-only bodybuilding competition being held in Australia for the first time. To get there they will have to endure months of training, dieting and hard work if they stand a chance of getting up on stage. Throughout the film we follow Tash and Kylene as they push their bodies to the limit sacrificing family and friends all for one purpose. Filmed over two years we experience their journey firsthand. Do they have what it takes to break into the world of amateur bodybuilding? Is it really all it's cracked up to be? Is the dream even worth pursuing and to what end? Destination Arnold is a roller-coaster ride of emotion with viewers sharing their journeys and getting a first hand look at what it takes to make it in the world of amateur bodybuilding.
