“Like” Screening Invitation
February 4, 2020
The Renaissance Middle School Community would like to invite the families of Glenfield Middle School and Buzz Aldrin Middle School to a movie screening of the film “Like”.
LIKE is an IndieFlix Original documentary that explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. The goal of the film is to inspire and help equip us to self-regulate. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share, and care … but is that what’s really happening?
Ways that social media affects our lives that we may not even realize:
- Mental Health – The goal of social media is to keep us “connected” 24/7 but is actually disconnecting us by increasing stress and anxiety as well as reducing sleep.
- Children – Training children to base their self-worth off of “likes” encourages them to compare themselves with others around them and creates constant FOMO (fear of missing out).
- Social Relationships – Virtual interactions such as “likes” or “shares” have taken precedence over face-to-face interactions.
- Democracy – Seeing the news through a filter skews our worldview and divides us.
Ideas by Center of Human Technology
On February 4th, Renaissance will host a screening of “Like” for all three Middle Schools. After the film there will be a panel discussion with professionals in field.
Please visit TheLikeMovie.com to view the trailer and see the impact this powerful film is already making. Through a Middle School community screening, we can empower ourselves and those around us to create balance in our lives and learn to be there for each other. Please join me in bringing this timely discussion to our community.
Seating has been made available to Renaissance Families first. However, we still have available seating for our Glenfield and Buzz Aldrin families.
