I Am Eleven Poster


February 15th, 2pm – Ondaatje Hall, Dalhousie University


The Halifax chapter of CISV (Children’s International Summer Villages)  is sponsoring a screening of the award winning documentary: “I am Eleven“.

“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.”

The screening will take place on Monday, February 15 at 2:00 in the Ondaatje Hall of the McCain Building at Dalhousie University.

Doors will open at 1:30 and you can learn more about CISV at that time as well.

Tickets are $12.50 through or $15.00 at the door.


We look forward to seeing everyone there.
