Kids are the future. They are also innately funny, and (some of them anyway) incredibly endearing. Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey travelled the world for six years talking with 11-year-olds to compose this insightful, funny and moving 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 weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to sit at this transitional age.
