NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - After having to cancel the screening of "Digital Nation" earlier this month due to weather, the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and Friends of the Visual Arts has rescheduled it for 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at The Cole Art Center @ the Old Opera House, 329 E. Main St. in downtown Nacogdoches. Admission is free.

Douglas Rushkoff's documentary was filmed for PBS' "Frontline" and first aired February 2010. The 78-minute film about our digital culture examines topics such as limited attention spans of multitaskers, computer gaming addiction, social relationships, virtual experiences and teaching with technology.
