In My Blood it Runs
On April 22nd, Jews for Social Action, regular partners in our Asylum Seeker support work, are hosting a screening of “In My Blood it Runs”, the story of ten-year-old indigenous boy Dujuan, shot in 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.
Join us at Roseville Cinema, at 6.30pm on 22nd April
All proceeds will go to Children’s Ground, supporting the education of first nations’ children in NT.
