InRealLife asks what exactly is the internet and what is it doing to our children. Taking us on a journey from the bedrooms of British teenagers to the world of Silicon Valley, filmmaker Beeban Kidron suggests that rather than the promise of free and open connectivity, young people are increasingly ensnared in a commercial world. Beguiling and glittering on the outside, it can be alienating and addictive.
This documentary provides an opportunity to consider modern technology, media, and the developing mind.
Read an interview and listen to a Q&A with director Beeban Kidron and critic and broadcaster Mark Lawson.
This screening forms part of Cinemania, a series of inspiring film screenings and talks for young people aged 16-19, taking place at 12 cinemas across London.
