Join us October 11 at 7 p.m. at Lourdes University Franciscan Center for a special screening of a film getting rave reviews throughout the United States – “Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age”
“SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.”
“Screenagers is a very balanced, sympathetic and sane look at the way millions of teens are struggling with phones and games and technology in general. In part by letting the teens themselves speak about their own concerns and solutions. Screenagers is deeply affecting, too.” — Dave Eggers, Author
“It’s a MUST SEE for anyone with kids in their lives!” — Martha Adams, Chief Creative Officer for Girl Rising
“I saw Screenagers two days ago at my son’s school PS276 NYC. It was an incredible eye opener… it pointed out exactly what we are dealing with in my family. .. This already has brought changes into our life.”— Kirsten R. C. , New York Parent
“i have been very concerned about this issue and as I’m a geneticist I’m very interested in the science behind it. The film is REMARKABLE: thoughtful, provocative and beautifully filmed and edited.” — Beth T., Geneticist at UCSF Children’s Hospital
“Screenagers is very informative and I liked how it included video games in the movie. I saw the film at my science camp this summer.” —Eshan Tivakaran, 15 years old, Plainview NY
