PLAY AGAIN on August 3rd!

Please join us this Friday, August 3rd at 6:30pm at American Memorial Park visitor's center for PLAY AGAIN!

What they do not know, they will not protect, and what they do not protect, they will lose. 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 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. What are we missing when we are behind screens? How does this impact our children’s well being, our society and the very future of our planet?
PLAY AGAIN introduces new perspectives and encourages action for a sustainable future.

First Friday Films is a monthly film series brought to you through a partnership with the National Park Service and the Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ), with generous support from community groups. This particular film is provided by the Humanities Council. For planning purposes, the movie runs about 80 minutes long. As always, First Friday Films is free and open to the public.
