The Association of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies NT screening of the film In My Blood It Runs has been postponed.

This screening is in conjunction with the annual AADANT AOD Conference (September 2020), but you will not be required to pay a fee to watch the film. This is a free screening for the Alice Springs AOD, mental health and primary care sectors and any conference delegates who wish to attend.

More about the film:

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.
