Event description

Description

Over 18 is a clear-eyed examination of modern pornography and its effects on kids, teens, parents, and porn stars. In addition to interviews with porn producers, ex-porn stars, and academics, directors Jared and Michelle Brock highlight the story of Joseph, a 13 year-old boy who is recovering from a porn addiction that he fell into when he was nine years old. The film compares what porn used to be in the magazine era and what it’s become in the age of the internet, and demonstrates why kids in particular are susceptible to addiction.

We want to educate parents about what their kids are being exposed to online and encourage them to talk with them about it. But conversations aren’t enough. We also think that adult websites should be mandated to install meaningful age verification systems so that no one under the age of 18 can access their highly addictive material. This new law would help protect our kids online and provide an easy and effective way for parents and caregivers to prevent their children from being exposed to pornography.

Other screenings are availble through St John Brebeuf School and associate parishes in the Fraser Valley.
