ĊineXjenza – The Social Dilemma

14 November 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

People pick up their phones around 58 times a day. Why are our phones so addictive? Join us for a screening of The Social Dilemma, a docudrama that examines the effect of social media on society through interviews with many former employees of social media companies along with academic researchers.

The film explores the ability of social media to manipulate people’s views, emotions, and behavior as well as to spread conspiracy theories and disinformation. The film also highlights the effect of social media on mental health, particularly the mental health of adolescents and rising teen suicide rates — a dangerous worldwide trend. Following the screening, join our experts for a discussion on the psychology of addiction, the ethics of data privacy, and the role of technology in society. Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, together with the student organization ICTSA, will be leading a world cafe session on these topics that are so ingrained in.
