“In My Blood It Runs,” playing through Thursday, June 25. Australian director Maya Newell presents a New York Times Critic’s Pick documentary about a 10-year-old indigenous boy who is gifted but “failing” in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare workers and the police. When he cannot run or fight alone, he realizes that not only has he inherited the trauma and dispossession of his land, but also the resilience and resistance of many generations of his people. Not rated.

“The Last Tree” will play through Thursday, July 2. It is the semi-autobiographical story of Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage who, after being fostered in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner-city London to live with his birth mother. In his teens, Femi struggles with the culture and values of his new environment. He must decide the path to adulthood he wants to take as he confronts what it means to be a young black man in London during the early 2000s. Not rated.
