The Land (2015) is a short documentary film about the nature of play, risk and hazard set in The Land, a Welsh adventure playground. At The Land children climb trees, light fires and use hammers and nails in a play-space rooted in the belief that kids are empowered when they learn to manage risks on their own. Watch the trailer.
At this event for CCS families, we will watch the short film (with popcorn!), followed by a discussion led by Jarrod on the film and the broader issues of outdoor play, risk, safety, and child development. Thought-provokation guaranteed!
While this documentary is about children, it is probably not appropriate for most children. Limited child care is available—make sure to buy a child care ticket.
