Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School presents for its Australian Premiere... SCREENAGERS - A movie about growing up in the digital age.

 Filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw her children scrolling through life, with rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span. She learned that the average child in America spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this screen time and the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. The result is SCREENAGERS, in which Delaney 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 children's development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

This film has won rave reviews whenever it’s been shown around the world and we are excited to be offering the first chance to see the film in Australia! We guarantee the film will have your whole family staying up late to discuss the issues raised.

Put the date in the diary and look out for ticket details this week!
