This ground-breaking film 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.
“Kate McIntyre Clere and Michael McIntyre’s shocking and thoroughly researched documentary Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story dissects the stigma of “pest” attached to Australia’s most iconic animal and how its ability to be divisive has impacted a nation and consequentially, the world. From the outback of Alice Springs to the streets of Sydney, the team behind this eye-opening exposé travel across the country to grasp every possible professional opinion on the issue. Zoologists and university professors, politicians and activists, farmers and hunters — all citizens of Australia — give their take on the kangaroo debacle.” — Critical Movie Critics
“A heartbreaking, deeply upsetting exposé of “the largest wildlife slaughter anywhere in the world,” one that has much to say about us humans and our relationship with the natural world” — flickfilosopher
