Willagee documentary screening of In My Blood It Runs - Event Postponed
This event has been postponed due to the weather. Stay tuned for a new date coming soon.
After some incredible wins in 2019 - including protagonist Dujuan Hoosan addressing the UN in Geneva, Parliamentary screenings and sold out festival screenings across the globe (Hot Docs, DOC NYC, SFF, MIFF and more), you won’t want to miss this amazing film screening at the Willagee Movie Night.
Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages, together we will journey with him as he discovers the resilience and resistance of many generations of his people and faces the history that runs straight into him.
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.
