Edward Milne Community School will be hosting Screenagers, a documentary that follows a doctor who is struggling with the idea of buying her 13 year old daughter a smartphone.

The film, which is put through the West Shore-Sooke Local Action Team, shows the effects technology has on sleep patterns and social development of youth, talks about digital addictions and how schools are using it in the education system.

“The blend of having the parent and the son or daughter at the movie, they have a chance to start the conversation,” said Scott Rothermel, RCMP school liaison for Sooke School District who helps teach internet safety in schools.

The movie will be shown on Monday (Nov. 28) at the EMCS theatre, doors open at 6 p.m., movie starts at 6:30 p.m.

Admission is $5, or $10 per family. Tickets are available at the door or online. For more info, call 250-216-8389.
