Do you remember what it was like to be 11? Perhaps it’s the age where the blissful naiveté of childhood fades as the responsibilities of adulthood are first realized. That’s how director Genevieve Bailey paints the crucial age in this heart-warming documentary that follows 11-year-olds from 15 different countries as they share what’s valued both privately and publicly in their lives, as well as their thoughts on love, war, terrorism, family, happiness, religion, and the future with remarkable humor, honesty, and wisdom. These open and self-aware interviews offer rare glimpses into young minds while inspiring audiences to reconnect with their inner 11-year-olds. From suburban living in America to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I Am Eleven takes the audience around the globe in a warm and life-affirming account of what it is like to be 11 today. In various languages with English subtitles read aloud. (93 mins., DCP)
