Flying Anne

21 minutes

Anne is 11 and has Tourette’s syndrome. She also has a great love of life

Catherine van Campen’s film follows 11-year-old Anne through the long and willful days of childhood as she reflects on her hopes and fears. Unlike most other 11-year-olds, however, Anne has Tourette’s syndrome, which manifests itself in involuntary tics and urges. The film is an affecting portrait of growing up different at an age of trying to fit in.
