The LIKE Movie:

A documentary about the impact of social media on our lives

LIKE is a 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.

The 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.

Please join us from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4 in Clements Hall for the film screening and discussion moderated by Dr. Ryan Smith. The event is free, but we request that you RSVP to reserve your space.
