    Screenagers deals with growing up in a digital world and the effects of screen-time, mental health, and the friction occuring over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction.  The film follows Dr. Ruston's interaction with her teenage daughter. Psychologists, aouthors, and scientists, including Sherry Turkle, Ph.D., Peggy Orenstein, and Nicholas Carr, M.D., are interviewed regarding how tech time impacts kids' development.

    "As a primary care doctor, I saw more and more kids of all ages and backgrounds glued to a screen. I felt a real need to understand the science around screen time and kids. And as a filmmaker who has worked on other movies for social change, I wanted to share my journey in order to help others who are struggling with these issues as well."  Dr. Delaney Ruston
