Documentary Showcase Explores Down Under With Australia: The Wild Top End

Australia: The Wild Top End premieres on the Scientology Network

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 Friday, October 25.   

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 coexist with a constant lurking threat from the ultimate predator, the saltwater crocodile.

Far 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 waterholes 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 Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and 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 fifty thousand years.
