Mary Mazzio’s latest film, “Ten9Eight,” debuted recently at the Aspen Ideas Festival and is slated for full release this fall. A synopsis of the film on Mazzio’s website for Ten9Eight goes like this: “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 newest project TEN9EIGHT, a thought provoking film which tells the inspirational stories of several inner city teens (of differing race, religion, and ethnicity) from Harlem to Compton and all points in between, as they compete in an annual business plan competition run by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).”
Mazzio, who lives in Wellesley, has directed and produced other movies, such as Lemonade Stories and A Hero for Daisy.
Here’s a trailer for the movie:
