Notes

Dogwoof blurb: "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?"

Beeban Kidron has an amazing CV ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeban_Kidron ) Her film portfolio ranges from a very substantial series of hard hitting social documentaries from the early 80's to the late 90s, a film in 2007 about sculptor Antony Gormley, Jeanete Wintersons 'Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit', 'Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason'. Most recently she produced the Stephen Frears directed 'Victoria & Abdul'. A social activist and member of the House of Lords, she is an interesting and complex figure in the worlds of global media, social politics and cinema.
