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.
