In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston 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 over-usage. 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.

A follow-up to the screening that provides discussion points is a weekly blog, Tech Talk Tuesday. Topics can include parenting apps, after-school activities, pro-social video games, digital citizenship, anti-bullying campaigns, sleep and screens and more.
