China Doesn’t Want You to See the Internet Addiction Film ‘Web Junkie’

Web Junkie in The Daily Beast

"We are proud that our film could be a catalyst for even a small change in the ways these boys are treated in China."

The directors of the documentary ‘Web Junkie’ on how they infiltrated a Chinese Internet addiction clinic—and got the teenage boys to tell their stories.

‘Web Junkie’ Examines Internet Addiction in China

Check out the newest review of "Web Junkie" in the New York Times!

"“Web Junkie,” a new documentary by Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia, makes clear that the government of China is not interested in ambiguity or excuses. The filmmakers report that China is the first country to designate Internet addiction as a clinical disorder, and the film observes efforts to address it as both an individual affliction and a social problem. Shot almost entirely at Daxing Boot Camp, a center in Beijing that offers treatment to young addicts, most of them teenage boys, “Web Junkie” offers a troubling glimpse into anxieties that are hardly China’s alone."

“Web Junkie” is a documentary that observes China’s efforts to treat young people, mostly teenage boys, who have an Internet addiction.

Talking to China's "Web Junkies" - The New Yorker

Check out this review of "Web Junkie" in The New Yorker!

"Opening August 6th at Film Forum, “Web Junkie,” by the Israeli filmmakers Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia, takes us inside an Internet-addiction treatment center in Beijing, one of hundreds across China, to chronicle the ways in which technology, wealth, and autonomy are altering the ties between young people and the elders who strain to comprehend those changes. The film’s best moments have the patience of ethnography, lingering in the background of communities that are usually out of view. Alongside Shlam and Medalia, the credits for “Web Junkie” contain a list of Chinese “fixers” and other crew members, and anyone who has worked in China will know how important that was to building trust with the participants."

In China, Internet addiction has acquired a symbolic function that is about more than health.

There Can't Be Peace Until Israelis and Palestinians Start Seeing Each Other as Humans

"Art can challenge taboos and engage audiences in non-violent dialogue. In Dancing In Jaffa, a documentary about pairing Israeli and Palestinian children as dance partners, the ballroom dancer and instructor Pierre Dulaine demonstrated how dance can help children overcome prejudice and build ties with one another."

An excerpt from a The Huffington Post | The WorldPost article posted today exploring methods of dismantling false narratives that promote prejudice and segregation.
