This well produced short film captures the essence of a dilemma of national and international importance - texting and incessant cell phone use. It's reached almost epidemic levels among youth and young adults in the USA as well as other countries, interfering with live social engagement and interpersonal communication. This short captures yet the tip of the iceberg on this subject in a very nonthreatening, yet poignant way. It would provide a great discussion starter at a film festival or other youth / family event. I give it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 13. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
A mini documentary where kids address a generation of youth being tethered or addicted to cell phones.
