Screenagers. Do you know any? The kids of today are growing up in a digital world. I'm pretty sure when I was 13 I was still playing wiffel ball with the neighborhood kids and maybe talking for 15 mins on the mustard yellow phone in our kitchen that had a rotary dialer and a 6 foot curly cord that I could stretch out to our staircase for some privacy. Ahhhh, the good old days.

This documentary film, Screenagers, (trailer here) investigates the impact that screen time is having on families and explores how learning, playing and socializing online affects teens' developing attention span, fragile self-esteem and moral instincts. This is a great opportunity to not only check out the renovated KPC if you haven't, but learn about what's happening with kids and their screens in our society. We've got our tickets. Here's where you get yours.
