Alone, Together on Film: InRealLife

InRealLife takes us on a journey from the bedrooms of British teenagers to the world of Silicon Valley, filmmaker Beeban Kidron suggests that rather than the promise of free and open connectivity, young people are increasingly ensnared in a commercial world. Beguiling and glittering on the outside, it can be alienating and addictive. Quietly building its case, InRealLife asks: can we afford to stand by while our children, trapped in their 24/7 connectivity, are being outsourced to the net? The World Premiere of InRealLife was held at the Toronto International Film Festival.
