Kids say the darndest things – just ask Bill Cosby, Tammy Wynette and Stewie Griffin. And every now and then it pays to listen because, to quote from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, “(y)outh cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young”.

With this in mind, head along to see I Am Eleven – a documentary made by Melbourne filmmaker Genevieve Bailey that focuses on a group of eleven year olds from 15 different countries, each speaking in their own words and revealing the private obsessions and public concerns that animate their lives. The film offers a global snapshot of youth at a pivotal age – old enough to have a firm grasp on the ways and wonders of the world but young enough to be free from the cynicism and complications that can sometimes taint our perspectives in adulthood.

WHEN: From Thursday 5 July
WHERE: Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon Street, Carlton
