Screening over.

Giving voice to the Indigenous Australian communities, this timely social justice film is relevant in the United States and other countries around the world.

Nominated for the Australian Academy Award for Best Documentary and Best Cinematography

N.Y. Times critics pick

The film’s main subject, Dujuan Hoosan, recently became the youngest person ever to address the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

20% of the proceeds will go to Children’s Ground charity, an organization led by the film’s advisors (who are also educators and grandmothers) working to prevent pathways to welfare and prison by transforming education and creating hope and opportunity.

IN MY BLOOD IT RUNS follows Dujuan, a 10-year-old Arrernte boy from Mparntwe (Alice Springs) in Australia.   At the time of filming, 100% of the youth in Alice Springs detention centres were Aboriginal.   Dujuan is a healer, full of life and exuberance.   Yet he is ‘failing’ in school; facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police; and travelling perilously close to incarceration.

“Colonialism is a war that began hundreds of years ago and never ended.   Its modern tactics and its weapons are noted with precision in the ferocious documentary, IN MY BLOOD IT RUNS.” – Teo Bugbee, N.Y. Times

“Could not be more timely…reverberates with the ongoing protests in the United States over racial injustice.” – Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

Language: Aboriginal, English (English subtitles)
Length: 1 hr. 30 min.
