Free Documentary Screening:  Screenagers - October 4-23

About The Film

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 happening with her own kids which started her on a question to delve into how it might affect their development. She learned that on average youth spend 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and worried about the friction occurring in homes and schools kids’ screen time was limited— she knew that friction all too well. 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 also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
