The average child today spends 53 hours a week in front of a screen. Have you ever wondered if media and technology have enslaved our generation? Could the greatest leap in technological advancement also have become the biggest setback in keeping us from the things that matter most in life? Has the world of screens, phones and all that comes with them become a technical utopia or a virtual prison? Is social experience more significant or shallow? Is technology all of these things or none of them?
These are the questions a remarkable new documentary called Captivated asks. The DVD looks at how communication through texting, facebook, email and other helps might actually be hurting how we communicate and interact with others.
It is impossible for most of us to completely cut off technology and this movie doesn’t say that we should. Technology has many blessings and advantages previous generations could only imagine, but with these changes come challenges too.
