Its almost Christmas so we thought ‘Play Again’ would be a suitable family orientated film to wrap up this Green Screen season.

Not your typical x-mas movie, “This moving and humorous documentary follows six teenagers who, like the “average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. PLAY AGAIN unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure – no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. “

So what are the consequences of a childhood removed from nature?

By most accounts, this generation will face multiple crises — environmental, economic and social. Will this screen world — and its bevy of virtual experiences — have adequately prepared these “digital natives” to address the problems they’ll face, problems on whose resolution their own survival may depend?

‘Play Again’ is not just for Christmas! Parents, Educators, community leaders alike need to have considered the huge shift in childhood time patterns that seems to adjust to the rapid developments occurring in new media technologies and how we interact with it.

We would especially hope you can join us for the Future Proof Kilkenny x-mas gathering following the screening at Hole in the Wall.

Time: Thurs Dec 15th, 8pm
Place: Hole in the Wall, High St
Cover Change: we don’t charge entry but do appreciate a dontation towards running costs of our work.
