Directed by Genevieve Bailey

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. (c) Official Site

"The project could easily have seemed like a smarmy Nickelodeon special or some variant of "Kids Say the Darndest Things," but Ms. Bailey's willingness to let the children talk and to let the viewer impose broader meaning elevates it."

-Neil Genzlinger, New York Times

"Regardless of background, sophistication or home country, the kids all share a lovely sense of open-heartedness. They all talk about being part of a collective, and see the human race as a large extended family."

-Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
