From the Heart Productions Funds ‘Generation Zapped’ Documentary

From the Heart Productions has awarded $30,000 in funding to the upcoming documentary “Generation Zapped,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Lebanese filmmaker Sabine El Gemayel is directing “Generation Zapped,” which is currently in post-production and awaiting completion of funds. It’s a cautionary look at the Internet and radio technologies that have changed modern lives, but may be causing irreversible health damage through the transmission of radio and Internet signals.

El Gemayel’s credits include “Niloofar,” a drama about a 13-year-old Iraqi girl being forced into marriage, which competed at the Berlin Film Festival.

“I am so grateful to From the Heart Foundation for letting us continue down this path to which a growing body of science seems to point,” she said. “Technology is here to stay. People need to be alerted about this so they can use it safely. It’s the precautionary principle.”

From the Heart Productions has provided funds previously to “Shakespeare Behind Bars,” “Stolen,” “A Girl and A Gun,” and “The Flute Player.”

“We think ‘Generation Zapped’ is one of the most important films of 2016,” said President Carole Dean. “Sabine and her team are bringing a possibly dangerous situation to our attention. She and her team have done their homework on consulting many experts in the medical and scientific fields who are concerned with the rising health issues wrought by today’s dependence on advancing wireless technologies. These are issues that the FCC and governments seem slow to address.”
