Join us for "Film Schmooze", a casual small-group discussion following the screening of this film.

Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all? In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, director Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st Century. From founding The Webby Awards to being a passionate advocate for The National Day of Unplugging, Shlain uses her love/hate relationship with technology as the springboard for a thrilling exploration of modern life…and our interconnected future. After centuries of declaring independence, perhaps it’s time to declare our interdependence instead.
