The short documentary “Common Ground” will premiere at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Archbold Theatre, 820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse.

Over the past five months, 112 Syracuse area high school students were given video cameras and one assignment: to film their everyday lives. Students from Fayetteville-Manlius High School, Fowler High School, Nottingham High School and the Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central filmed everything from their morning routines to after-school activities in an attempt to find their similarities, while also respecting their differences.

The documentary was produced by Syracuse Stage.

Before the students were given cameras, a team of teaching artists asked the high schoolers a series of questions to help shape the direction of the documentary, and get the students to think about what they have in common.

The screening is free and open to the public.
