So this is exciting: the documentary film about 11-year-olds that I told you about last week has been extended in the Bay Area through next week. That means you have another chance to see this touching film before the filmmakers, Genevieve Bailey and Henrik Nordstrom, travel back to the other side of the world in Australia. And you really need to. I had no idea how hilarious and charming 11-year-olds could be before I saw the film last Friday. They’re still kind of kids, but almost teenagers. They’re on the cusp, and they are all wonderful, from India to Indonesia, the U.S., China and beyond.
Want to win? In the comments section below, fill in the blank: When I was 11 ___________. It can be anything: funny, sad, embarrassing, whatever. I will pick a winner at random on Monday morning, who will get to check out the showing of their choice at the Metron next week from Monday through Thursday. The film has been extended to other theaters in Berkeley and Oakland, Larkspur as well as the Balboa Theater and the Regal Stonestown Twin. Check out all show times are listed here and above on the flyer. And don’t forget to tell us what you remember about being 11!
