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 15 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.
With post-screening discussion guests Lisa Lockerbie, Sooke Nature Kindergarten; David Segal, Power to Be; Todd Carnahan, Habitat Acquisition Trust and moderator Dr. Richard Kool, School of Environment & Sustainability, Royal Roads University.
In collaboration with Habitat Acquisition Trust
