:: Spotlight :: Screenagers - Movie Trailer and special Q&A sessions

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

The average teenager spends 6.5 hours per day looking at screens. Delaney Rushton, a doctor and filmmaker, has experienced first hand the impact this has on children, in all areas of their lives. In her new documentary, SCREENAGERS, Delaney Rushton 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. Featuring a combination of dangerous findings and poignant, unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts teenagers’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Delaney Rushton will visit Australia in April to talk about Screenagers and her extensive knowledge and research on the subject. She will also dicuss potential solutions for parents to help them deal with the common friction that screen time can cause in the home, such as Tech Talk Tuesdays and Screen Time Contracts. Delaney will visit Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne to host special screenings of the film, supported by Fan Force.
