PLAY AGAIN - a film screening

Don Brown, local film guru and promoter, is bringing this compelling and beautiful documentary along with the producer herself (Meg Merrill) on Monday, August 16th at 6:30 p.m. at the Bambu Venue on 1144 Bethel Street in Chinatown.

Film synopsis:
     One generation from now most people in the U.S. will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature. New media technologies have improved our lives in countless ways. But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children?
     At a time when children play more behind screens than outside, PLAY AGAIN explores the changing balance between the virtual and natural worlds.

     Through the voices of children and leading experts including sociologist Juliet Schor, neuroscientist Gary Small, and geneticist David Suzuki, this film investigates the consequences of a childhood removed from nature and encourages action for a sustainable future.
