In My Blood It Runs is a documentary by Maya Newell which provides a compelling, rare insight the life of ten-year-old Dujuan, a child-healer, a talented hunter and speaker of 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.
