The kangaroo is simultaneously an icon and a pest, a sacred symbol, a resource to be harvested and a species to be protected. KANGAROO explores the complex and conflicting opinions around this unique marsupial, and the fact that it is currently at the centre of the largest mass destruction of wildlife in the world, something many Australians are unaware of. Filmmakers Kate McIntyre Clere and Mick McIntyre travel the continent to speak with Indigenous Australians, scientists, meat processors, commercial shooters, farmers, politicians, artists, wildlife carers, chefs and activists on the state of the roo. With breathtaking footage of kangaroos in the wild, the film provides an up-close experience of this incredible species and ignites a conversation that Australians seem reluctant to have: the future of the largest remaining marsupial species left on the planet.
