**This event has been cancelled until further notice due to COVID-19.**
Join Amnesty’s Redfern Group for a free screening of In My Blood It Runs, an intimate and compassionate documentary following Dujuan, a 10-year-old Aboriginal boy in Alice Springs, struggling to balance his traditional Arrernte/Garrwa upbringing with a state education.
We will meet at 5.30pm for a 6pm start. We will begin with an Acknowledgment of Country and a short introduction to the film and Amnesty’s Community is Everything campaign by Amnesty campaigner Joel Clark.
After the screening, there will be a Q&A discussion with guest speaker Larissa Behrendt.
Refreshments provided. See you there!
“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.”
