FEBRUARY 22: Web Junkie by Shosh Shlam & Hilla Medalia 
When the words "China" and "Internet" appear in the same sentence, the word "censorship" is usually close by. But in at least one aspect of the Internet revolution, China is establishing a precedent the rest of the world could soon follow. China is the first country in the world to classify Internet addiction as a clinical disorder, the cure for which is the subject of Web Junkie.

The film follows the treatment of Chinese teenagers whose preference for the virtual world over the real one is summed up in one jarring statement: "Reality is too fake." Bringing them back to earth is often a very bumpy ride. Award-winning Israeli filmmakers Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia were given incredibly open access to Daxing Boot Camp, a three-month military style anti-addiction program in Beijing designed for patients 13 to 18 years old. Web Junkie portrays the rehabilitation process and the evolving diagnosis behind it.
