"I often profess the roots of many of the sustainability issues faced by humanity lie in a separation from the rest of nature...If a failure to identify with the rest of the natural world contributes to a disconnect between our choices and negative environmental and social consequences, what will be the results of isolating ourselves from each other? Use this timely documentary to spur discussions (face to face!) about the important, but often overlooked, impacts our electronics have on social development."
Joy Joann Scrogum, Emerging Technologies Resource Specialist, Co-coordinator of the Sustainable Electronics Initiative, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign


"Succeeds in capturing the ways in which cell phones are pervading our lives. It is very engaging and sparks great conversation among young people."
Dr. Roberta Golinkoff, Professor of Education, University of Delaware, Author, Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells us About Raising Successful Children


"[Offers] sound advice on how to monitor one's social media usage and how to judge what is the best application of technology...Appealingly genuine."
Geri Diorio, School Library Journal


"Very useful and engaging. Like fish in water, we have come to rely on anytime/anywhere access to information, content, and each other. This is especially true of young people growing up in today's digital environment. This film takes the fish out of water for a fresh perspective on its bowl - and the broader world around it."
Dr. Scott W. Campbell, Professor of Telecommunications, University of Michigan


"An honest and overdue evaluation of how our devices are shaping us...A heartwarming and eye opening understanding that people are more important than devices."

"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


"The point of the digital cleanse is that it affords participants the opportunity to take an introspective look at how they are socially, emotionally, and biologically affected by technology and reflect on their experience...CELLING YOUR SOUL is positive and inclusive."
Jay Gillespie, Wicked Local
