The Kangaroo

The Kangaroo

The Kangaroo Australia´s Passion

Documentary // NDR / ARTE 2009, 43 min., HD

Every year 7 Million kangaroos are shot during open season. Animal Rights activists are horrified. They look after injured kangaroos and any left young ones, the so called Joeys. The film centres on the Australians and their divided relationship with their heraldic animal. This conflict is predominantly discussed in view of the value of the fifth continent's very own natural treasures and the future cohabitation of man and beast here.
