Screenagers poster-LongviewBetween social media, video games, academics, socializing and other pursuits, the average youth spends 6½ hours a day looking at screens.

When physician, filmmaker and mom Delaney Ruston learned this, she set out to explore the impact on young people and their families, including her own. The result is “Screenagers: Growing up in the Digital Age,” a film that tells the stories of students and their families.

Exploring the impact of digital media on human development—including insights from psychologists, brain scientists and other researchers—“Screenagers” offers families strategies for finding balance in the digital age.

Longview Public Schools and the Longview Police Department are presenting “Screenagers”—with Spanish subtitles—at 6 p.m., Tuesday, May 30, at Kessler Elementary, 1902 E. Kessler Blvd., Longview. The movie is free and open to the public—and the Pioneer Lions Club will be providing free kettle corn.
