iGEN Cinema - Dot and the Kangaroo

Dot and the Kangaroo

Lost in the bush, Dot is a young girl trying to find her way home until she is befriended by a big Red Kangaroo searching for her lost Joey. Nestled in the kangaroo's soft pouch, Dot has the trip of a lifetime, bounding from one adventure to the next – along the way meeting a koala, platypus, and kookaburra - and even a mob of angry dingoes!

A classic Australian children’s film from 1977, Dot and the Kangaroo captures an era of innocence and discovery, where the bush is home to a variety of wide-eyed creatures ready to make friends. A nostalgia trip for anyone who was a child in the 80’s, with true blue songs from native wildlife.
