Event description

Description

Viewed as both an icon and a pest, the kangaroo presents as one of Australia’s biggest ecological dilemmas. Sydney Environment Institute presents a screening of the award-winning documentary Kangaroo – A love-hate story.

Set in distinctive Australian landscapes, Kangaroo explores the complex and conflicting opinions around this unique marsupial at the centre of the largest mass destruction of wildlife in the world. With breathtaking footage of kangaroos in the wild, the film provides audiences with 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.

Join directors Mick McIntyre, Kate Clere McIntyre for a discussion and screening of Kangaroo, a ground-breaking film addressing Australia’s complex and often exploitative relationship with its national icon.
