CISV believes we can have a global impact on our world and that the best place to start is with the children.
Our flagship program, Village, is for 11-year-olds; thus it was only natural for us to hold a screening for I Am Eleven documentary that focuses on that age group.
Please register, so we know you are attending.
According to the promoters, “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.
These children share their thoughts on a range of subjects such as love, war, global warming, music, terrorism, culture, family, happiness, religion and the future. As straight up and personal as the ’7 Up’ series, and with the comedy and honesty of ‘Spellbound’, this documentary enables us to explore an age where these ‘not quite kids, not quite teenagers’ briefly linger, between the frank openness and sometimes naivety of childhood, and the sharp and surprisingly brave wisdom and knowing of adulthood. As much as it is a story about them, it is a story with them, of what it is like to be eleven today.”
Please join the Brandywine Chapter of CISV in a screening at the Exton Library. We will have a very brief overview of our chapter’s goals and mission and some take-home information. Can’t wait to see you there.
We encourage you to share this information with others – download our flyer here.
Again, please register above, so we know you are attending.
