Beeban Kidron, InRealLife, 2013


19 Nov 20141 Dec 2014

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.
