Growing Up in the Digital Age provides valuable insights for educators, parents, and those who work with youth in a variety of settings.

SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time affects development and offers solutions on how adults can empower youth to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might affect their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, 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 addiction.

Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS addresses one of the most pervasive issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers youth to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.
