|#15932/0645 IN REAL LIFE|
"Smart and serious! Offers a survey of the virtual world's creeping infiltration into our lives." The Independent "This is not just a well-made film, it is the starting point of a vital discussion." The Camden New Review "A riveting case for the prosecution of the web as a creature that bears careful watching." The Herald InRealLife asks what exactly is the internet and what is it doing to our children? INTERNET ADDICTION!? The only LIFE they've ever known?! Taking us on a journey from the bedrooms of teenagers to 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. Quietly building its case, Kidron's film asks if we can afford to stand by while our children, trapped in their 24/7 connectivity, are being outsourced to the net? *** A SPECIAL SCHOOL AND NON-PROFIT PRICE IS AVAILABLE
