I Am Gen Z / Liz Smith / Great Britain 2021 / 100 min / English friendly – When the first iPhone was introduced in 2007, it was a revolution comparable to the invention of the printing press. For members of the Z generation (people born between 2006 and 2012), the ubiquity of mobiles and the Internet is the norm – they’ve never even known another world. What is the impact on their concentration, ability to build relationships, and mental health in general? Director Liz Smith’s film offers a remarkably thorough answer via the testimony of neuroscience and behavioural psychology experts, but the same space is given to members of the Z generation themselves through authentic recordings published on social networks.
