  • THE KANGAROO KING

DESCRIPTION

The scorching interior of the worlds oldest continent is home to the toughest kangaroo on the planet – the mighty Red. In this inhospitable yet breathtaking land “Red” takes on the greatest challenges of his life, and of his species.  From the moment he is born Red’s quest for life begins, as he hauls his tiny body to his mothers pouch.  Extremely rare footage of a red kangaroo birth and specialised in-pouch camera’s capture an intimate portrait of reds development from within the pouch. We are introduced to Red’s formidable neighbours through close encounters with wedge-tailed eagles, dingoes, venomous snakes and giant monitor lizards.  And also some entertaining and gentle neighbours such as a troop of emus and the bizarre shingleback lizard. Above all, this is a story of survival against the odds and what it takes to endure drought, heat wave, and bushfire. Red struggles to prove his strength, not only against others of his kind, but also against the very land itself.
