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.

Proud

"One of the most exciting series of the year."
- Cahiers du Cinema

In 1981, it was still illegal to be gay in France. Today, same-sex marriage is recognized and has paved the way for legalizing the adoption of children by LGBTQ families. Proud tells the story of Charles, Victor, and Diego, three generations of the same family who represent the seismic social changes that took place in just three decades.

From the award-winning director of Fatima (the 2016 Cesar winner for Best Film), this three-part episodic cinema event is a chronology of tolerance and a portrait of one family through changing times.

Yourself and Yours
