Are you a social media butterfly? Can't live without your smartphone?

Or would you prefer to have nothing to do with it?

Love or loathe it, digital communication technology has dramatically changed the personal communication and interpersonal interaction landscape and it is here for the long haul.

And as the technology continues to grow, some are taking pause. What are the current and future human impacts and implications of cell phones, social media, and the Internet?

Documentary filmmaker, director, and Pacific Northwest native Dominic H. White asks these questions and more in his new eye-opening documentary, DSKNECTD, which screens Tuesday, Oct. 8 as part of the 2013 Tacoma Film Festival. The documentary delves into how mobile devices; virtual worlds, social media and the Internet are reshaping human interactions. Looking at the good, bad, and the ugly, White leaves the viewer in the end pondering their own personal connections to technology.

Now, South Sound residents will have the opportunity to put these questions to the test, too.

A special screening will be held at the University of Washington of Tacoma's Carwein Auditorium. Sponsored by UWT, White will be on hand for a Q&A session after the screening.

DSKNECTD, 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 8, Carwein Auditorium, University of Washington of Tacoma, 1754 Commerce St., Tacoma, free, tacomafilmfestival.com
