I Am Eleven (Genevieve Bailey, 94 min, 2011) Rated G.
Last year Two Bright Lakes founder Nick Huggins lent his singular musical talents to the work of Melbourne-based filmmaker Genevieve Bailey. 'I Am Eleven' saw Bailey tour around the world, interviewing 11-year-olds in 15 different countries, from America to Morocco to Thailand to Australia, from rich to poor, from insider to out, weaving a deeply affecting portrait of what it means to sit at this most transitional of ages. 'I Am Eleven' has since gone on to garner accolades and awards the world over, including the People's Choice Award at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
For one night only, Nick Huggins and his band will be re-creating his achingly beautiful soundtrack for 'I Am Eleven' live on stage. Gentle but piercingly insightful, like the film itself, it will be a unique accompaniment to this funny, sweet and knowing meditation on the things about growing up.
Followed by a Q&A with Nick and the film's director.
