National Reconciliation Week - In My Blood It Runs
Next date: Tuesday, 01 June 2021 | 10:30 AM
Join us for a FREE community screening of the film ‘In My Blood it Runs’.
This critically acclaimed 2019 documentary is told through the eyes of charismatic Arrernte/Garrwa boy, Dujuan and his family, revealing the challenges Dujuan faces both in his school and on the streets of Alice Springs.
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.
This is a free event, however bookings are essential.
