AS PART OF THIS YEAR’S TARNANTHI FESTIVAL AGSA IS SCREENING FILMS EVERY SUNDAY IN JANUARY
Every Sunday in January enjoy a selection of feature and short films telling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories on the big screen at AGSA, curated by Ngarrindjeri filmmaker Josh Trevorrow.
The feature film for Sunday 30 January is the critically acclaimed documentary In My Blood It Runs.
In My Blood It Runs
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.
No bookings required, arrive early to secure a spot. Capacity limits apply.
