Cane Toads: The Conquest
Documentary
 
 
One of Australia's greatest environmental catastrophes is the unstoppable march of the cane toad across the Australian continent. Despised by many, venerated by some, the toad has occupied a nation's consciousness achieving both cult and criminal status. Despite its international origin the cane toad has become uniquely Australian -- yet, for a world wrestling with the idea that we have irretrievably altered our own ecosystem, its story holds universal relevance. Featuring a host of engaging characters as well as thousands of toads, "Cane Toads: The Conquest" is a humorous yet thought-provoking journey into the issue of invasive species. Rated PG for disturbing images, language including drug references, and brief smoking.
