In Real Life is a new documentary looking at the impact of the internet on the lives of teenagers – who have never known a world without always-on web connected devices. Interspersing a selection of stories about online celebrity, porn addiction, cyber-bullying and more, the film also tries to find out what ‘the cloud’ really is – and what is being done with all the data that is being volunteered and collected by large companies every day. There are interviews with such luminaries as Julian Assange, Jimmy Wales and Nicholas Negroponte (who tells us he remembers a time when he literally knew everybody using the internet, in its infancy) – who talk about surveillance, loss of privacy and the enormous social changes that the web has brought about.
