Screening of LIKE, an IndieFlix Original Documentary

Join us and Fusion Academy Princeton on Monday, June 3 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Princeton Garden Theater (160 Nassau Street, Princeton, NJ) for a screening of the film LIKE.

This IndieFlix Original Documentary 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’s 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 how to navigate it more safely together. 

The screeening will be followed by a panel discussion with local students, including PGC and Teen PEP peer leaders. You can RSVP here (and feel free to share with your local friends!): https://www.fusionacademy.com/princeton/event/the-like-movie-screening-at-princeton-garden-theater/
