In My Blood It Runs - Full Documentary Screening
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for an exceptional private screening of the documentary "In My Blood, It Runs".
Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter, and speaks three languages. As he shares his wisdom of history and the complex world around him we see his spark and intelligence. Yet Dujuan is ‘failing’ in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police.
As he travels perilously close to incarceration, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he becomes another statistic. We walk with him as he grapples with these pressures, shares his truths, and somewhere in-between finds space to dream, imagine, and hope for his future self.
A deep emotional dive into the reality of first nation people in Australia.
30% of the profit will go towards immediate crisis response work by our partner organisations Children’s Ground and Akeyulerre Healing Centre in Alice Springs to help communities prepare for and prevent terrible health impacts of coronavirus. 20% will go to directly support those in the film who live in the Northern Territory during this uncertain time. The remaining 50% is split equally between Dujuan, his family, and the producers.
Join us, invite family and friends, for a very moving movie night.
