PLAY AGAIN is an award winning documentary directed by Tonje Hessen Schei, produced by Meg Merrill, and edited by David Bee. The soundtrack includes music from Icelandic band Sigur Ros and singer Kimya Dawson.
At a time when children spend more time in the virtual world than the natural world, PLAY AGAIN unplugs a group of media savvy teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure, documenting the wonder that comes from time spent in nature and inspiring action for a sustainable future.
This film encourages individuals, families, schools, and communities to examine their relationships with both screen technology and nature, and inspires them to take action to reconnect children to the natural world.
The Cathance River Education Alliance and Project Learning Tree are excited to be part of Frontier's programming of PLAY AGAIN during Earth Week, April 22-29.
With multiple showings Thursday April 26-Sunday April 29, this is Southern Maine's chance to check out the film that has been making its way into school programming across the state. Following the opening Thursday night 8pm screening will be a post film Skype Q&A discussion with Outreach Coordinator Greg Lemieux as well as discussion hosted by the supporting groups. The Cathance River Education Alliance and Project Learning Tree will have displays that raise awareness about their organizations and will be there to answer questions.
"We love what we know. If we don't know about our nearby nature, or have a connection, it will certainly be more difficult be for policies that are good for our environment to occur in the future. It is because people played outside and appreciated their wild spaces that we now have a variety of policies, protected spaces, and trails for future generations to enjoy. "Play Again" helps cultivate this important discussion." Rick Wilson
