Film Review

The many fiercely smokin’, bitchin’, slam-dunkin’ scenes, comments, dialogues and conversations in this 98-minute gem by Director Rob Garver – using archival footage of interviews and scenes from films, collages of clips, shots of news and magazine pages plus contemporary interviews – generates visceral sensations one would expect from a get-down, in-your-face, action-adventure reality show.

DOC NYC 2019 Film Review

IN MY BLOOD IT RUNS features a 10-year-old Arrernte child prodigy narrating his life in this splendid documentary shot in the Northern Territory of Australia, providing a broad vista of, one, how the Arrernte deal with apartheid and oppression through the spirituality of tradition and custom, and two, the grim realities of inveterate racism and bigotry that subjugate his people. Director Maya Newell’s unflinching in-your-face portrait doesn’t have a shred of cynicism.
