Fame High
Scott Hamilton Kennedy, 2012, USA, 88 min.

From the nail-biting freshman auditions to the spectacular year-end performances, Fame High captures the in-class and at-home drama, competition, heartbreak and triumph during one school year at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA), also known as Fame High. Talented teenagers reach for their dreams of becoming actors, singers, dancers and musicians.

Fame High is Academy Award Nominee Scott Hamilton Kennedy’s follow-up to The Garden. This unique hybrid film is a Robert Altman-esque, coming-of-age, documentary-musical which follows a group of novice freshman and seasoned seniors struggling to find their voice – not only in their art but in life – with the help of, and sometimes in spite of, their passionate and opinionated families.

A short film, The Kodachrome Project produced by Webster alumnus Jerod Welker ’13, will also be screened.
