Introduction and post-screening Q&A with Scilla Andreen, CEO of IndieFlix (2016/2017 Films)
“The drug-like effect of screen time on the teenage brain: Screenagers explores the complex relationship teenagers have with their screens… as well as the darker side, those who lose control of their digital habits, and spiral into damaging behavior.” PBS
The average kid spends more than six hours a day looking at screens, scrolling through life with rapid-fire thumbs and six-second attention spans. Physician and award-winning documentary filmmaker Delaney Ruston watched her own kids and wondered about the impact of all that screen time, as well as the friction it causes in homes and schools. In Screenagers, Ruston explores struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction through poignant and funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists. Screenagers reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to find balance with the digital world. (2016, 70 min.)
