Ten9Eight

In America, a kid drops out of High School every 9 seconds - imagine if they didn't. This is the compelling question behind award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio's thought-provoking film project, TEN9EIGHT: Shoot for the Moon, which chronicles the inspirational stories of several teens from low-income communities (from Harlem to Compton and all points in between) as they compete in an annual business plan competition. By learning how to be entrepreneurs, many of these students can now forge futures and destinies they never thought possible. [86 minutes] Closed Captioning
