Are we doing enough to protect our kids from violent and sexually explicit material on the internet?
Through their smartphones, children are being exposed to hardcore pornography far earlier than the legal age of 18. Many reports estimate the average age of first exposure is between 10 and 12 years old.
Through this exposure, some children are developing lifelong addictions to pornography.
Since the creation of the internet almost nothing has been done to protect children online. Porn sites asking the question "Are You 18?" is clearly not enough.
Praise for the film
"Having seen Over 18 I am very hopeful that this film can be seen by every parent and grandparent in Canada! The negative impact of pornography on our young generation of Canadians can not be overstated and must be curtailed by every possible means."
-Harold Albrecht, Member of Parliament
“Over 18 has been one of the most effective conversation starters we've seen in order to break the silence around pornography. We have seen people not only become more aware of the issues surrounding it, but feel more empowered to start speaking up in their workplaces, churches & families."
—Josh Gilman, Executive Director, Strength To Fight
“The directors of Over 18 have brought together profound and complex perspectives in a clear and helpful manner that forces the viewer to take a hard look at the reality of accessible sexual violence online. The film was incredibly influential in starting the national conversation in Canada on the impact of violent sexually explicit material.”
– Arnold Viersen, Member of Parliament
