We invite you to have a yarn about about privilege and marginalisation at the intersection between culture, education and justice.
The film has received wide critical acclaim.
“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.”
“A profound opportunity to reflect on our relationship with Aboriginal Australia and what is truely broken. These children are not broken its’ the systems around them that are.” CHRIS SARRA
“A profoundly moving documentary: simultaneously informative, insightful and affecting.” JENNY NEIGHBOUR, SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL
