                                    Becoming 13
| 47 min

This smart documentary explores the intimidating terrain of girlhood by following three 12-year-olds over the period of one year. As these girls move from childhood to maturity, it's clear that peer pressure is an important influence, but as the films shows, the greatest influence in a young girl's life is family.

Filmmaker Victoria King's creative approach, including the use of "diary-cam" footage, not only follows the girls but allows them to question the world in their own voices. Ultimately, the film reveals the complexities of being 12, both satisfying our curiosity and inviting us to ask, What happens next?

    This is a very sweet and honest-seeming portrait of three young girls and their mothers (mainly) from St. Johns. I appreciated the girl's voices in this project and how larger narratives emerged from what was both said and unsaid by both mothers and daughters within the film. I will encourage my goddaughter to watch this one for sure!! Thank you!
