London Premiere of Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story

KANGAROO (2017)

Kangaroo hops into U.S. theaters starting January 19.

Posted by Kangaroo on Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Film Synopsis

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. This documentary unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined revealing scenes behind the largest mass destruction of wildlife in the world.

Each night these unique animals are killed in the wild and sold for profit across the world. Europe is the largest importer of kangaroo parts for pet food, leather and as meat for human consumption.
