A portrait of a young Aboriginal Australian boy.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Dujuan Hoosan, a 10-year-old Australian boy, lives in two worlds. During the day he must speak English at school and conform to the modern world. Elsewhere, he is a vital member of the Arrernte tribe as a respected healer and advocate for Aboriginal rights. The confluence of these two realities overwhelms Dujuan, leading to trouble with the police and child services. Maya Newell’s evocative and shrewd profile of this singular child bursts with hope and imagination.
