Scientology Network’s DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE, the weekly series providing a platform for Independent filmmakers to air films on important social, cultural and environmental issues, presents the documentary Australia: The Wild Top End on October 25, 2019.
DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Australia: The Wild Top End is an epic journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth. Here humans and animals co-exist with a constant lurking threat from the ultimate predator, the saltwater crocodile.
Northern Australia is a land like no other—vast, extraordinary and untamed. The extreme seasons bring brushfires, torrential rains and floods. The coastline, rivers and water holes are frequented by sharks and snakes, but nothing is as vicious and deadly as the saltwater crocodile, aka “salties.” This unmatched predator has existed—unchanging—for 200 million years. It survived the age of dinosaurs and the meteor that wiped them out. It survived the Ice Age. It has even survived the rise of man. Shot originally in 8K for IMAX with underwater camera rigs, this film gets closer than ever to these prehistoric predators. And from the wild Kimberley Coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land to deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York, this film is an adventure through the top end of Australia.
Director Nick Robinson artfully captures archeological treasures and customs of this land dating back over 50,000 years.
Writer/Director Nick Robinson began his career as a marine biologist but soon made his way into adventure documentaries.
With over 25 years experience, Nick has produced more than 100 programs and commercials and won several awards for both directing and cinematography.
