The first feature documentary to explore the impact of screen technology on kids and to offer parents proven solutions that work premieres in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 2. SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in The Digital Age screens at John Marshall High School in Los Feliz at 7:00 PM. Co-producers Karin Gornick and Lisa Tabb will be in attendance and will lead a Q&A afterwards. Tickets are available on Eventbrite for $5/each; parents are encouraged to bring their kids in 5th grade and above. All proceeds benefit John Marshall High School.

Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston decided to make SCREENAGERS as she found herself constantly struggling with her two kids about screen time. Ruston felt guilty and confused, not sure what limits were best, especially around smartphones, social media, gaming, and how best to monitor online homework. Hearing repeatedly that other parents were equally overwhelmed, she realized the struggle over tech time had become one of the biggest parenting issues of our time.

Ruston turned the camera on her own family and others—revealing stories that depict messy struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.
