Screenagers: Under The Influence

Screenagers: Under the Influence

This third feature documentary in the Screenagers trilogy delves into how the tech revolution has reshaped adolescence and teen substance use. Debunking many myths, the film illustrates strategies parents and schools can use to encourage healthy decision-making, support teen mental health, set limits, and create healthy home environments; and highlights the many ways young people are using their wisdom and strength to help each other and themselves through this complicated terrain. While most documentaries about substance use focus on severe addiction, Screenagers Under the Influence explores more common scenarios, addressing the current reality teens face being flooded by images on social media, movies, and TV about vaping, drugs, and alcohol. Combining cutting-edge science with personal stories, Screenagers emphasizes practical solutions for keeping our teens safe in an ever-changing world.

The screening will be followed by an in-depth panel discussion featuring:

  • Rene Ayala, coach/teacher, Archie Williams High School
  • Rhana Hashemi, Founder, Know Drugs; PhD student, Stanford
  • Loretta Hovey, student, Archie Williams High School
  • Kristin Nash, Executive Director,¬†William G. Nash Foundation
  • Lisa Tabb, Director/Producer, Screenagers Under the Influence
