There's a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake
After international acclaim at the Edinburgh, Tacoma, and Austin film festivals, the live-action short film There's a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake is finally making its way back to Australia for a limited season.
Since its first 1980 release through Penguin Publishers, the Australian picture book has sold over a million copies worldwide, ABC viewers voted it one of their 150 favourite books of all time, and it was an official Australian Government birthday gift to Danish Princess Isabella. Filmed entirely in the Dandenong Ranges and featuring an endearing animatronic hippopotamus, there isn't much to not love about it.
There's a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake will screen at ACMI from June 9-11 & June 13.
