Co-curated with the Barbican Young Programmers as their final film in their ‘Teenage Kicks’ season, this in depth documentary explores social anxieties surrounding 24/7 internet connectivity and its effects on the lives of young people in Britain today.

Making connections between corporate capitalism, new technology and the everyday lives of young people in Britain, InRealLife asks important questions as to who controls this new world and what are its rules and values – are adults anxious about what they don’t understand whereas for young people this is all they know?

Through stories told by young people themselves a picture emerges of dangers and real exciting new ways of socialising. The future is where we take it.
