RE VERZIO: Web Junkie
Hilla Medalia, Shosh Shlam | 2013 | USA, Israel | 74 min | Mandarin
Wednesday, 8 April, 6 pm
China is one of the first countries in the world to call internet addiction a clinical disorder. The authorities therefore set up 400 centers to help young people overcome this addiction. In the withdrawal camps, teenagers are under the permanent supervision of psychologists and physicians and their daily routine is similar to a military drill. Will the methods of the Chinese therapists succeed? “Web Junkie” is an emotional voyage which examines the results of internet addiction and its effects on family relationships, while simultaneously examining the Chinese culture of hyper-competitiveness.
