‘Play Again’ Victoria premiere in collaboration with HAT on November 7th, 2012

This post published on August 28, 2012

We are thrilled to announce the Victoria premiere of the documentary Play Again  on Wednesday November 7th, 2012, in collaboration with Habitat Acquisition Trust.

PLAY AGAIN: What are the consequences of a childhood removed from Nature?

At a time when children play more behind screens than outside, PLAY AGAIN explores the changing balance between the virtual and natural worlds. Is our connection to nature disappearing down the digital rabbit hole? This moving
and humorous documentary follows six teenagers who, like the “average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. PLAY AGAIN unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure – no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. Visit www.PlayAgainFilm.com for more details and join our Facebook event page for ongoing updates, links and news.
