It's People Like Us

From 22 September, we'll have exclusive screenings of It’s People Like Us, a short documentary about us and our phones, directed by Eva Orner.

By the end of today, most of us will have checked our phones over 150 times; on the toilet, in the car, at the dinner table, even during sex. But, have we ever stopped to ask ourselves – is there a time and a place? This documentary follows five real Australians who, just like us, have found themselves drawn into their screens at the expense of common sense and self preservation.
