Join us on Monday 26 March for a Q&A screening with Co-Director Mick McIntyre (Aussie Rules The World) in attendance for a panel discussion at Luna Cinemas Leederville on Monday 26 March following the 6.30pm session.
Set in distinctive Australian landscapes, Kangaroo explores the complex and conflicting opinions around
this unique marsupial at the centre of the largest mass destruction of wildlife in the world. With breathtaking footage of kangaroos in the wild, the film provides audiences with an up-close experience of this incredible species and ignites a conversation that Australians seem reluctant to have; the future of the largest remaining marsupial species left on the planet.
This ground breaking film directed by Kate McIntyre Clere (Yogawoman) reveals the truth surrounding Australia’s love-hate relationship with its beloved icon. The kangaroo ‘image’ is proudly used by top companies, sports teams and tourist souvenirs, yet as they hop across the vast continent many consider them pests to be shot and sold for profit. KANGAROO unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined.
'The filmmakers are determined to sound a wake up siren, and they blast it with extra strength.' - new york Times
“In the same way documentaries such as The Cove and Blackfish have altered public perceptions and official policies on marine ecology, this doc has the potential to help bring kangaroo welfare and management into much sharper focus in Australia and internationally.” - Variety
'Insightful eye opening.' - Los Angeles Times
