From Tweety Bird to Bow Wow, double dutch to chat rooms, Daddy's girls to first deceptions, watch as Ariana, Isha, Rosie, and Esme let go of childhood and fumble — or sprint — toward an uncertain future. This is puberty and for each of these girls of color, it’s a whirlwind of change and new choices. Without flinching, GOING ON 13 enters their world as they negotiate the precious, precarious moments between being a little girl and becoming a young woman.
"In the spirit of documentary greats like Seven Up! and
Hoop Dreams" — TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL
" A rare and frequently inspiring close-up on girls who are at an age that is usually quite impenetrable to adults." — TIME OUT NEW YORK
We are very excited to announce that GOING ON 13 will be airing again on PBS stations across the country on February 12!
