FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's News Center)---A documentary filmed in Warsaw, IN over the 2005-2006 school year received critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival and is now a major motion picture.

"American Teen" is a film that follows the lives of 5 high school seniors from Warsaw Community High School.
Director Nanette Burstein chose Warsaw as the setting because of its depiction of a mid-western American town.

The movie has had several premieres throughout the country but none as significant as Tuesday nights. Fellow students were able to see first hand why their former classmates and their school is becoming so popular.
Mitch Reinhold one of the stars of the movie says, " Hopefully it can put Warsaw on the map and just make people see, I don't know, that even in a small town people can relate to you. It's a good place to grow up."

The movie will be released nationwide on August 15th.
