Lycoming College will be hosting a screening of the humorous film “Cyber-Seniors” at 2 p.m., Nov. 7 in room G-11 of the Heim Science Building. The film and a reception, which will begin at 1:30 p.m., are free and open to the public.
A heartwarming documentary, “Cyber-Seniors” highlights the growing generation gap by focusing on a group of senior citizens who take their first steps into cyber-space under the tutelage of teenage mentors. The film expertly renders a thought-provoking look at a spirited group of men and women who are enriched by digitally reconnecting with their families and each other. Finding their footing rather quickly, the group competes for the most YouTube views while swiftly building their online inventory of friends.

The film is sponsored by the department of Anthropology and Sociology as part of a class on the sociology of aging. The film and reception will encourage students and others to work with the cyber-senior program to help older adults connect with family and friends through social media.
