Filmed over a school year, this cinéma vérité documentary shows the changing face of our culturally diverse, inner-city classrooms. It tracks the progress of two 10-year-olds, Mahfuzur and Neola, as they learn about fairness, the consequences of their actions and the realities of life in Canada. Their teacher Ken Scott, having been raised in a single-parent, low-income family himself, has a deep understanding of his students' lives.

The World at 10 was produced as part of the Reel Diversity Competition for emerging filmmakers of colour. Reel Diversity is a National Film Board of Canada initiative in partnership with CBC Newsworld.
