In one short decade, we have totally changed the way we interact with one another. The millennial generation, the first to be socialized in a digital world, is now feeling the unintended consequences.
 
CELLING YOUR SOUL is a powerful and informative examination of how our young people actually feel about connecting in the digital world and their love/hate relationship with technology. It provides empowering strategies for more fulfilling, balanced, and authentic human interaction within the digital landscape.
 
The film reveals the effects of "digital socialization" by taking viewers on a personal journey with a group of high school and college students who through a digital cleanse discover the power of authentic human connectivity, and that there is "No App" or piece of technology that can ever replace the benefits of human connection. 
 
"Celling Your Soul has the potential to intimately connect with students viewers. The students featured provide a level of peer to peer support for the viewers and open a dialogue about the harms of being so closely connected to a cell phone. Through personal stories and revelations the viewer is left with the very provocative question: 'What benefits could a technology cleanse introduce to my life?'"
- Tara Stamm, Dept of Sociology, Virginia Commonwealth University
