How do viewers make sense of the different kinds of realism in the images we see in films and television?
DigiURI Media Club: "#Being13: The Secret World of Teens" documentary
Join us August 5 at 9am ET to discuss "#Being13: Inside the Secret World of Teens," a forty-five minute documentary by CNN that seeks to shed light on how young people are using social media and what we older folks should know about it. What may be more interesting than the documentary itself are the comments posted by teens below the video. We'll explore both as we talk about how quickly a documentary like this becomes outdated given its nature and more!
NEW THIS MONTH! Mary Kate Lonergan and Cathy Reznicek will host a slow chat about this title over the month of August! Find them on Twitter at @ms_lonergan and @cathyreznicek and use #digiuri and #mediaclub to join in the conversation throughout the month!
