Virtual Dryden Theatre | Streaming Online. Dujuan is a 10-year-old Aboriginal boy growing up in Alice Springs, Australia. His mother and grandmother have moved to the city to provide him education at the mostly white school district there. What emerges is a portrait of a young boy caught between what he needs to live and what he needs to survive.
Portrait of Jennie is, ostensibly, an average film, but in its final reel, it reveals it is a rare cinematic experience. Jared Case, Anthony L’Abbate, and Spencer Christiano will talk about the film, its technical peculiarities, and how those aspects are re-created in a modern cinema.
