About

Kids are losing sight of what is important in life, screens are taking over everything, and the "dumbing down" of everything, from pop culture, to textbooks, to the way people prepare for the real world is detrimental for our society. You can ride the bus, and people from all ages are focused on their mobile phones, if you observe, you'll feel like you are walking among zombies. Walk into a classroom, and you will feel the same way. Watch a movie, and even the vocabulary used has been limited. Listen to a song, and it is also limited, there is no essence in anything. Parents seem ignorant of it, or part of it, the elders gave up, but there is hope, the same youth will listen to you if you can get their attention, many of them are confused, and they are simply victims of this massive system that dictates them by inserting ads custom made for the 10 year old customer, by promoting "influencers" that promote the same "dumbing down" of society. It has even reached governments worldwide. We need to prevent this bread and circus, and raise awareness using the same methods to get their attention, give them a dose of the truth, where we are heading, and how they can snap out of it and come back to the real world, where they can appreciate real social interaction, the real world with its beauties, and the immense knowledge available but untouched. If a song can influence millions, if an article can reach millions, our documentary only needs to reach them, get their attention, and we will be able to guide them, maybe not all, but even if we make a positive impact and achieve a good number of followers, that will be the beginning. One bullet started a world war, one idea can change a person. 

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge in raising awareness today is not in mentioning something, or writing about it, it requires active measures to deal with the problem, for every minute uploaded, for every tweet, for every instagram post, thousands are being uploaded, many have spoken on the issue, but none have been able to make it to the top for the rest to see. We have a team of young people, all of them experts in visual arts, editing, and marketing, with the correct backing and management, we can create a new wave, something that will cause an impact for a better future.
