Film and Discussion: Screenagers at Forsythe Middle School

Thursday February 1, 2018: 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm -- Forsythe Middle School Auditorium

This event is intended for grade 6 - adult

Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston 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 this acclaimed film, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes 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.

The Ann Arbor District Library, working in partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the Forsythe Middle School PTSO, will host this screening of the Award-winning documentary Screenagers. The film will be followed by a panel discussion led by teachers, parents and school administration officials.

This 70-minute film is not rated.
