Ten-year-old Arrernte/Garrwa boy Dujuan is a child-healer and speaks three languages yet is ‘failing’ in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police.
Made in collaboration with Dujuan and his family, In My Blood It Runs tackles another heated topic, First Nations education and juvenile justice and again places the missing voice of children front and centre.
From director Maya Newell (Gayby Baby).
In My Blood It Runs at cinemas nationally, and at Cinema NOVA from Thursday February 20th.
