NYWCFF -Series 7: Australia - Koalas, Kangaroos and Wombats
Saturday February 2, 2013
Series 7     4:00-6:00 PM
Theme: Australia:Koalas, Kangaroos and Wombats


Dr. Kevin Baker, Producer
6 minutes
Country: Australia
* World Premiere
** Appropriate for children

Wombat is a short and true story of an orphaned baby wombat that was hand reared (from when it weighed less than 6 ounces), then released back into the wild three years later (as a 60 pound adult). It found it way back to the person who raised it and dug a burrow 20 yards from their back porch. This film poses a serious question: how much animals are compromised in their behavior when humans intervene in their lives.

Country: Australia
* New York City Premiere
** Appropriate for children
*** Award Winner for Best Conservation Category

Koalas  are now confronted by a maze of roads and human mayhem and with fewer places to live, they are becoming refuges. Koala Hospital presents the poignant and surprising life of koalas. For 40 years, the "Koala Hospital" has been caring for sick and injured wild koalas, giving them a second chance at life.

A Kangaroo Like Alice
Dr. Kevin Baker, Producer
10 minutes
Country: Australia
* World Premiere
** Appropriate for children
*** Award Winner for Best Amateur Category

A true story of three baby orphaned kangaroos raised by humans and successfully released to be integrated into a "mob" of wild kangaroos. The story confirms that wild animals have well developed feeling of socialization and mutual assistance, even affection for new comers of members of their own species.

60 minutes
Bianca Keeley, Director & Producer
*New York City Premiere

A prehistoric, six-foot creature moves stealthily through the ancient rainforest. A blazing, multi-colored neck flashes before one of the world's most bizarre and dangerous birds majestically appears - the Southern Cassowary. This film takes you on an intimate journey inside the rarely seen world of these flightless giants. Cassowaries can weigh up to 85 kg, swim across crocodile-infested rivers and run at 40 kph... These are no ordinary birds.

* Q & A with filmmaker Susan Kelly
