Kangaroo - A Love-Hate Story (M)

Kangaroo - A Love-Hate Story movie poster

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.

Cast members Dianne Smith and Greg Keightley will be speaking at the Saturday screening.

The Hon. Mark Pearson, NSW MLC for the Animal Justice Party will be speaking at the Sunday screening.
