An affecting portrait of ten-year-old Dujuan Hoosan and his community on the outskirts of Alice Springs, Maya Newell's documentary evokes the disconnect between a bureaucratic, homogenised education system and an Aboriginal child who doesn't see himself or his cultural beliefs reflected in it. Contrasting the rigidities of formal schooling and the justice system with Dujuan's strong sense of identity, the film makes a compelling case for cultural learning and self-determination, as Meg Roberts outlines in this study guide.
