Storyline

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.

You can't handle the truth
14 March 2018 | by mdervin-75596See all my reviews

Australians all must face the ugly truth of the kangaroo industry, its truly disturbing. I didn't want to watch it but I am glad I did. We all need to be informed. It's also beautifully shot with a great score and very interesting interviews. Highly recommended.
