selfless poster

selfless opens the conversation to the ever growing epidemic with selfies, social media, and technology and its impact on each of us body, mind and soul. Depression and anxiety rates are at an all time high as we live in an age where young people have never had so much freedom at their fingertips – yet are so confined – with parents and teachers seemingly helpless.

selfless is not an anti-technology film, but rather a reflection on our devices and ultimately asks the question “What are we reaching for?” In the earliest days of storyboarding we pondered “If a girl lived in the forest with no mirrors, magazines or social media – what would ‘beautiful’ look like to her and how would she view herself? Then Kuki found us and off the grid we went to the hills of Devon, England where our story began. All the young people in the documentary offer messages born from their own personal experiences.

selfless has earned solid reviews from HBO Documentaries, Participant Media and the current interest of Fathom Events, Circle Disney and Focus on the Family. Recently we were on CBC Radio Early Edition which further confirmed the fact that families are struggling with connection. Following screenings, we’ve had people approach us with tears in their eyes, thanking us for this film and for the value and hope it carries for families.

This is a special screening. Evans passes will not be accepted for admission.
