A New Dramatic Series about Teen Pregnancy and the Nine Month Journey Between Childhood and Adulthood
9INE, a coming of age story for Lonnie Dixon as he experiences a nine month journey from childhood to adulthood, provides a powerful spotlight on the decisions teens face when confronted with pregnancy. Viewers are directed to resources and information that take into account many diverse perspectives.
These nine, short videos (each approximately 10 minutes long) show what it's like to be dealing with a pregnancy at a young age. They also really focus on the young man's perspective. I thought these seemed very "real" and would like to get opinions from others!
One reviewer writes: "A few months ago I finally sat down to view this nine episodic series on the Public Internet Channel. Each episode was supposed to represent a month in the pregnancy. it was a nice touch in the first one where the two main characters were unaware of the oncoming situation. I'm usually not a fan of web shows, but this one had a different feel than others I've watched. Another thing that made it special was at the end of each episode there were interviews with real teen parents, who shared insights to their lives. I highly recommend for any, teacher, mentor, parent or peer dealing with young people around these types of issues."blog comments powered by Disqus
