Children today can identify a hundred corporate logos, and fewer than 10 plants. This moving and humorous documentary follows six young teenagers who, like the “average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind computer, TV, and game box screens. PLAY AGAIN unplugs these teens and engages them in filming their first wilderness adventure – a camping trip -with no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. They find out what they are missing, and so do we, as they examine their own behavior in followup video journaling. This film is geared for every parent, teacher, grandparent, aunt and uncle. From infancy to young adult, a whole generation's ability for learning, validation, and confidence as citizens hangs in the balance. Join us for the film and lively discussion afterward.
