In My Blood It Runs – Alice Springs Premiere
Sat February 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
After premiering at Hot Docs, Canada in April 2019, winning a number of awards and screening at festivals around the world IN MY BLOOD IT RUNS now comes home for our Mparntwe / Alice Springs Premiere!
We open in cinemas nationally from 20th February 2020 but we wanted to share the film with our hometown crowd first.
After the film hear a panel discussion co-hosted with key partners, Children’s Ground, where we will raise important issues you can support.
Please come along to celebrate this special event with cast, crew and partners Q&A – more details to follow;
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.
