Kazu Kusano—The Cinematheque

When I graduated from high school, I wondered what would become of everyone? Some of the stereotypes came true: a few of the nerds became IT techs; the delinquents have menial labour jobs; the valedictorian became a doctor; the jocks work at SportChek and the Asian kid (me) became a math professional (Data Scientist). So what happened to the class clown? This show provides the answer.
