Back by popular demand, the Avon Land Trust will host a second screening of the film Play Again, as part of its annual meeting program on Friday, November 16th 7:00 p.m.  The screening will take place in the Avon Free Public Library’s new Community Room, and refreshments will be served.


Play Again is a touching and provocative documentary, winner of many national and international awards and ‘must-see’ designations.  It poses the question: is our connection to nature disappearing down a digital rabbit hole? And, if so, what are the consequences?  The Play Again producers ‘unplug’ six adolescents (who, like the “average American child,” spend 5-15 hours a day behind screens of some sort) and take them on their first wilderness adventure – no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. Through the voices of the children and several leading experts, Play Again investigates the consequences of a childhood removed from nature and encourages action for reversing the trend and undoing the damage.  The film is suitable for all ages and runs 55 minutes.  A brief audience discussion will follow the screening.


 Admission to Play Again is free and open to the public.To view the film’s trailer, please visit http://playagainfilm.com/gallery/trailers/.
