“Screenagers – Growing up in the Digital Age” Screening

January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Janesivlle Mobilizing 4 Change is excited to make this film available to all of our community.  We have also been working with all the middle schools in our area and they will all be given the change to screen the student version during school hours.

SYNOPSIS –

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly 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 best navigate the digital world and find balance.

You will not want to miss this ONE TIME screening opportunity.  The screening will be held at Craig High School in the small auditorium on Wednesday January 16th at 6:00pm.  The event is FREE but please be sure to register through Eventbrite for a ticket.
