Storyline

Do you remember when you were 11? Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey traveled the world for six years talking with 11-year-olds to compose this insightful, funny and moving portrait of childhood. From an orphanage in India to a single-parent household in inner-city Melbourne, to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I AM ELEVEN explores the lives and thoughts of children from all around the world. It weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to stand on the cusp between childhood and adolescence, that fleeting moment when childish naiveté has faded, yet teenaged self-consciousness has not yet taken hold. These young minds, still unguarded and remarkably honest, offer a powerful insight into the future of our world. Written by International Film Circuit

A Gem
24 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

Genevieve Bailey's journey through the lives and minds of eleven year old children globally, is genuinely heartwarming and insightful. Never veering into sentimentality, Bailey's sensitive portraits reveal some innermost truths, startling points of view - and moments of utter hilarity. Accompanying several 11 year olds through their everyday lives, Bailey captures their thoughts from on diverse range of subjects - from love, friendships and familial relationships - through to dreams, bullying and the environment. At turns surprisingly poignant and funny, it's a colourful ride from country-to-country, where each child is obviously so at ease with Bailey and her camera that they are simply, wonderfully, themselves. Beautifully shot with a melodic soundtrack, it's a gem of a film.
