The film is screening at CPH:DOX now for its worldwide festival premiere
Through expert interviews and the web lens of Generation Z, the documentary explores how the digital revolution is impacting our society, our brains and mental health, how the forces driving it are working against humanity and have put us on a dangerous trajectory that has huge ramifications for this first generation growing up with mobile digital technology.
It was really refreshing to watch a film where Gen Z wasn’t villainized. The film had a great empathy for our generation. We are usually viewed as lazy, selfish and self-centered. The experts in the film mentioned that Gen Z actually encompass a great deal of empathy. We appreciate kindness, and fairness. We are compassionate, and have a great deal of curiosity about the World and the people around us. We are simply part of a system that is larger than ourselves, and larger than life really, which is why we can be hyper-focused on ourselves and our accomplishments. However, this isn’t entirely our fault. We have grown up in a capitalistic society, where we are expected to consume, and accomplish to have value. This point of view moved me, because this kindness and sense of fairness is what I see in my friends.Victoria Koberg, Film Editor, Sein
