Description

The nature of play, risk and hazard are explored in this documentary, 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. Directed by Erin Davis. Produced by Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert.

Discussion, moderated by Hanna Rosin, author of “The Overprotected Kid” (The Atlantic, April 2014), follows screening with filmmaker Erin Davis and Rusty Keeler, designer of the Anarchy Zone adventure playground at the Ithaca Children’s Garden.
