Paper long abstract:

This film presents the work of four young filmmakers of New Delhi. From March to May 2012 they took part in a video workshop at the CIE Experimental Basic School, a government primary school. Each of the filmmakers was eleven years old. Their films offer a special perspective on Indian family and working life. The workshop was coordinated by David MacDougall as part of the 'Childhood and Modernity' Project, supported by the Australian National University and the Australian Research Council. The four films included are: My Lovely General Store, Why Not a Girl?, My Funny Film, and Children at Home. The four directors, two girls and two boys, are all residents of north Delhi and attend the CIE Basic Experimental School, a government-funded primary school. At the time of filming they were all eleven years old. None had made a film before.
