Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by screens. Have we entered a techno utopia or a virtual prison? Most would agree that we are a media-saturated society, but what effect is all this media having on us individually and culturally? People of all ages are reporting that their unchecked media consumption has led to disconnection, discontentment, and captivity.
Captivated features insights from media experts as well as personal stories from individuals and families who have escaped media addiction and learned to make discerning and God-honoring choices about their use of media technology.
This feature-length documentary is not anti-media or anti-technology, but it raises critical concerns about our culture’s seemingly unchecked enthusiasm for media consumption. It highlights the overwhelming evidence of growing problems on multiple fronts, including the potential physical, psychological, moral, and spiritual impacts of media technology when used or consumed without discretion.
