Film Details

(2008) 61 min - Three students. Three weeks. No computers. Could you do it? 

How long could you go without a computer? Three Carleton College students take on the challenge of giving up their computers to see how their academic, social, and work lives are affected. No Google. No Facebook. No e-mail.  How will they get their work done? Will they cheat? Who will survive the longest? This documentary follows students Andrew, Caitlin, and Chel as they go through “digital detox” and learn to interact with themselves and with others in ways we have largely forgotten.
