We tried to do this screening in April but had technical difficulties…. but now we are back and better than ever!
Bring your lawn chair or blanket, your bug spray and your kids! If they don’t like the films they can play in the playground.
Now the screening will be outdoors (with an indoor back up) in Discovery Children’s Centre’s wonderful Adventure Playground at 367 Hampton Street, Winnipeg!
ADVANCE TICKETS ONLY!
The first film is:
All The Time in the World: Disconnecting to Reconnect. A documentary by Suzanne Crocker.
In search of a new perspective, a family of five leave the comforts of home to live remotely in the Yukon wilderness during the long northern winter and amidst the surprises that the rawness of nature provide. The parents leave their jobs and take their three children, ages 10, 8 and 4, to spend nine months living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, and no internet, no TV, no phone and, most importantly, no clocks or watches.
Filmed over 9 months, off the grid, without external crew, and featuring the unique perspectives of children, All The Time In The World explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment – parents connecting with children, children connecting with nature.
The second film is The Land by Erin Davis
The trailer can be viewed on their facebook page
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.
