Documentary about social media’s impact to screen at Aspen District Theatre

Staff report

Aspen Family Connections and the Aspen School District will present a screening and discussion of the film “Like: A Documentary About Our Lives on Social Media” from 5:30-7:30 Tuesday at the Aspen District Theater.
The documentary will run for the first hour of the event, followed by a student panel discussion.
The event is free and recommended for all adults and children 10 and older.
The film’s marketing materials describe it as “documentary that explores the impact of social media on our lives. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.
Our goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other.”
