ARE YOU USING TECHNOLOGY OR IS TECHNOLOGY USING YOU?

TEF Free Film & Speaker Series Presents: “LIKE” with Guest Speaker Patricia Greenfield

LIKE is an IndieFlix Original 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 is 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 to navigate it more safely together.

The goal of this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self regulate. 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.
