An extraordinary man named Brogla (an aboriginal word for stork) lives in a shack in the Australian Outback with a mob of orphaned kangaroos. He has dedicated his life to saving red kangaroos, nursing them back to health and returning them to the wild. The film follows Brolga as he rescues three young kangaroos and becomes their surrogate mother, providing them with round-the-clock care while overcoming firestorms and wild dog attacks. Kangaroo Dundee offers an exceptionally intimate window not only into Brogla’s life but also into the life of the red kangaroo, showing the extraordinary animal’s natural history, from courting and birth to struggles for dominance within the mob. Directed by Andrew Graham-Brown and Tom Mustill. Award for Best People & Nature Program, 2013 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.
