2. Play Again, Saturday, March 17
Prince George Naturalists Club is co-sponsoring Play Again at 7 p.m. at Connaught Youth Centre, 1491 – 17th Avenue. This emotionally moving and humorous film follows six teenagers who spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. Play Again takes them on their first wilderness adventure – no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. Through the voices of children and leading experts Play Again investigates the consequences of a childhood removed from nature and encourages action for a sustainable future. Best of Fest, Colorado Environmental Film Festival; Audience Award, Portland Oregon Women’s Film Festival.
The film is part of the 2012 Traveling World Community Film Festival, a series of award-winning documentary films on environmental, social justice and human rights issues showing in Prince George from March 16 to 24.
