L'oeil de la Genève Internationale
Delaney Ruston - physician, film maker and mom – questions in her documentary "Screenagers" teenagers' relations to the digital world. Confronted to the demand of her daughter to own a smartphone, the filmmaker explores the issues of social media, video games and other addictions related to the Internet.
Favoring a personal approach – notably through the practices and difficulties encountered in her own family – she questions young screen users' relations to the world. The many interviews of academic experts - whether they are psychologists, brain scientists or new technologies experts – suggest solutions allowing young people to navigate the digital universe avoiding its pitfalls.
