InRealLife (+ Q&A with director Beeban Kidron)

Tickets £5.

An in-depth documentary exploring social anxieties surrounding 24/7 internet connectivity and its effects on the lives of young people in Britain today.

Making connections between corporate capitalism, new technology and the everyday lives of young people in Britain, InRealLife asks important questions as to who controls this new world and what are its rules and values – are adults anxious about what they don’t understand whereas for young people this is all they know?

Through stories told by young people themselves, a picture emerges of dangers and exciting new ways of socialising.

Co-curated with the Barbican Young Programmers in the ‘Teenage Kicks’ season.

The film was released in September last year.  More details can be found at its official website

Beeban Kidron's directorial career spans 30 years and she is perhaps better known for her work in drama, including high profile feature work with Renee Zellweger, Wesley Snipes and Shirely MacLaine, as well as the acclaimed BBC TV series 'Oranges are not the only Fruit'.  She will be present after the screening to answer questions about the film.

Tickets can be bought (here).

We will go for a drink afterwards to discuss the event.

I will send out an e-mail with meeting details, to all those who have RSVPed, shortly before the event.
