Discovery Film Festival: I Am Eleven (Age 9+)
28 October - 4 November 2012
Last year, Australian director Genevieve Bailey set off around the world to capture the lives of children aged 11 in their own words. She chose the age 11 as a critical time – “no longer children, not quite adults, preparing to inherit a world changing as quickly and dramatically as they are”. The interviewees present their opinions on a host of subjects, from love to climate change and religion. Their thoughts are at once both fascinatingly similar and reflective of the rich variety of their cultural backgrounds.
I Am Eleven is screening as a companion piece to the exhibitions which will run in DCA Galleries throughout the festival.
