HEF and Hingham Sports Partnership welcome Kathi and Chris Sullivan as they share their personal family stories of lives lost, and almost lost, as a result of substance abuse.

Together, they bravely share the stories of hope, love, change, and strength. Students will long remember their powerful strategies for more positive choices. 

SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age - Sold Out

January 25, 2017

Hingham Middle School Auditorium (please note new venue)

7-9 PM

We are thrilled to present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about one of the biggest parenting issues of our time.


Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.


SCREENAGERS addresses this pervasive parenting issue head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.

Sorry, this event has SOLD OUT.
