Monday, October 23, 2017 7:00 PM
John L. Grove Hall GRH101

Do you remember when you were 11? Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey travelled the world for six years talking with 11-year-olds to compose this insightful, funny and moving documentary 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 15 countries. I AM ELEVEN weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to sit at this transitional age. These young minds provide us with a powerful insight into the future of our world. A National Council of Teachers of English Screening Room selection. "Entrancing documentary. Stunning."--New York Daily News. Dr. Thomas Crochunis of the English Department will provide an introduction and facilitate a discussion afterward.

Director: Genevieve Bailey, USA, 2014, 98 min., Berber, Bulgarian, Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Malayalam, Mandarin, Swedish, Thai with English subtitles.
