Kangaroo: A Love Hate Story
"The filmmakers are determined to sound a wake-up siren, and they blast it here with extra strength."
"Kangaroo is a sobering depiction of how deep cultural divides affect the future of a species, even one so seemingly ubiquitous and resilient."
"Has the potential to help bring kangaroo welfare and management into much sharper focus in Australia and internationally...recalls eco-activist films such as "The Cove" and "Blackfish."
"One more of this planet's seemingly endless and frightful ecological dilemmas, presented with compassion and intelligence."
-Film Journal International
