Families are finding that the age of the typical child with a cell phone is getting younger. Generation ZAPPED! is a solution-based documentary that investigates the health concerns around technology, and is a good companion to Screenagers. Generation Zapped also won Best Directing and First Place Documentary at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival, and Best Documentary for the DC Independent Film festival. A Q&A discussion will accompany the film to discuss the release of the California Department of Public Health recommendations for wireless devices for children and adults, and much more.
