Melbourne filmmaker and friend of Little Hero, Genevieve Bailey's first feature documentary
I AM ELEVEN has secured a cinema release next month. This project has been in production since 2005. Go Gen!
I AM ELEVEN is a life–affirming global portrait of humanity at a crucial age – no longer children, not quite adults, preparing to inherit a world changing as quickly and dramatically as they are. This documentary focuses on a series of eleven-year-olds from 15 countries, each speaking in their own words and revealing the private obsessions and public concerns that animate their lives.
I AM ELEVEN national release kicks off in Melbourne July 5, then Perth July 12, then Brisbane, Byron and Sydney July 19.
