Event description

Description

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.

Join us for this evening showing of the 2019 documentary “SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age". Physician Delaney Ruston sets out to understand the challenges of emotional wellbeing for teens in our screen-filled society. (runtime about 67-minutes)

A facilitated discussion will follow the film at the Boyce Middle School theater (1500 Boyce Road) at 7:00 PM. An earlier screening and discussion will take place on the same date at the McLaughlin Run Activity Center at 1770 McLaughlin Run Rd at 10:00 AM.
