Visit Saturday 23 May 12:00 for a live Q&A with filmmaker Maya Newell + special guests, and Elaine Pearson, Australia Director, Human Rights Watch “I was born a little Aboriginal kid,” explains 10-year-old Dujuan. “That means I had a memory – a memory about being Aboriginal.” Born in Mparntwe (Alice Springs), Australia, Dujuan has a strong connection to his culture, speaks three languages, and is regarded as a healer in his community. But within the colonised school system, his strength, gifts, and intellect go unnoticed, his culture ignored and deleted from school books, and he acts out, attracting attention from the police and child welfare system. At the time of filming, 100 percent of the youth in Alice Springs detention centres were Aboriginal. In this powerful portrait, made in collaboration with Dujuan's family, Maya Newell puts the beauty, resilience, and challenges of the Northern Territory’s Indigenous children in the spotlight. “What I want is a normal life of just being me. And what I mean by me is: I want to be an Aborigine.” Dujuan Turner, In My Blood It Runs
