The Australian Permanent Mission to the United Nations in Geneva

in collaboration with the Australian Human Rights Commission

invites you to a screening of the compelling Australian documentary

In My Blood It Runs

 

On Tuesday 10 September at 6:30pm

at the Kazak Theatre (Room XIV), Palais des Nations

The star of the film - 12 year old Dujuan - and its director, Maya Newell, will introduce the film

which will be followed by a short panel discussion and reception


 

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.
