Schenectady High students create, star in local movie

Posted:

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - Schenectady High School students have taken to the big screen to get their real-life story of struggle, triumph and loss out to the public.

Students wrote, directed, created the soundtrack for, and starred in a movie about their lives.

"Fast Life" sheds light on the struggles young people face daily, growing up in gritty, urban Schenectady streets. Students involved in the film say "Fast Life" is hard-hitting, with a real-life plot, and no-holds-barred dialogue.

"I grew up in Brooklyn. I was a child of the streets. I want everyone to know that we have worth too. We're not just drug dealers and baby's mommas. We have a voice, and 'Fast Life' lets our voice be heard," says "Fast Life" Director Prince Sprauge.

"Fast Life" premieres at Proctor's Theater in Schenectady on Thursday April 25th. Tickets are on sale for $5 or $25 for VIP passes.
