I am Gen Z premiered at this years CPH:DOX festival and will be screening at Raindance Film Festival!
Produced by Chantelle De Carvalho and Directed by Liz Smith, this documentary explores the impact of the digital revolution and smartphones on today's teenagers and what that might mean for the future.
For those who don't know, Generation Z (aka Gen Z, iGen, or centennials), refers to the generation that was born between 1996-2010, following millennials. This generation has been raised on the internet and social media, with some the oldest finishing college by 2020 and entering the workforce.
Investigated through expert interviews and the web lens of Generation Z, the documentary explores how the explosion of the digital revolution is impacting our society, our brains and mental health.
The current tech revolution is moving at hyper speed and brings with it a lot of positives, but there is a dark side too. When our children become adults the world will be a very different place to the one we know today. It is critical that we ask questions now about the role we want tech to play in our lives and make conscious decisions about how we integrate it into our lives, and in the lives of our children.
This documentary raises questions about the contemporary world we live in, questioning what will our children become, have smartphones destroyed a generation? OnSight have had our eyes truly opened to this informative documentary and can't wait for the world to see it. OnSight’s contribution to the film includes, Colourist Ellory Payne, Online Editor Adam Sample, Re-Recording Mixer Andy Coles and Post Producer Jeff Halsey.
