Trailer of the Day: Kangaroo

Kangaroo

Written and Directed by Kate McIntyre Clere and Michael McIntyre
With Kangaroo Dundee, Tim Flannery, Terri Irwin, Peter Singer and Phil Wollen

This groundbreaking 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 as tourist souvenirs, yet when they hop across the vast continent some consider them to be pests to be shot and sold for profit. Kangaroo unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined.

“To make Kangaroo, we worked hard to tell all sides of the story,” said directors Kate McIntyre Clere and Michael McIntyre. “We travelled thousands of kilometres across the magnificent Australian outback, speaking with Indigenous Australians, scientists, meat processors, commercial shooters, farmers, politicians, artists, wildlife carers, chefs and activists, to explore the wonder of this magnificent and unique animal and to weave together an unsettling story for the world to see.”

Abramorama recently announced they have acquired the North American rights to this controversial and comprehensive documentary about one of the world’s most recognizable icons, the kangaroo.
