InRealLife asks what exactly is the internet and what is it doing to our children? Taking us on a journey from the bedrooms of British teenagers to the world of Silicon Valley, filmmaker Beeban Kidron suggests that rather than the promise of free and open connectivity, young people are increasingly ensnared in a commercial world. Beguiling and glittering on the outside, it can be alienating and addictive. Quietly building its case, InRealLife asks if we can afford to stand by while our children, trapped in their 24/7 connectivity, are being outsourced to the net?

Press

  • The Times
    "A shock-doc on the effect of incessant internet use on the malleable, still-growing teenage mind"
  • Financial Times
    Film-maker/documentarist Beeban Kidron explores the IT age in InRealLife, surfing widely and provocatively.
    Nigel Andrews
  • Observer (UK)
    It's unsettling viewing, and smartly sidesteps allegations of parental paranoia by talking directly to those "digital natives" whose lives are being transformed (for better and worse) by the web.
    Mark Kermode
  • London Evening Standard
    Everyone has their drug of choice. All we can do, suggests the canny Kidron, is be aware of who's supplying that drug and monitor the quantity, and quality, of what we consume.
