Tech Detox | Part Two: "Play Again" Movie Screening & Discussion

  • The Green Room #410, 10310-102 Avenue Edmonton, AB, T5J 5A2 (map)

The Green Room invites you to Tech Detox: a three-part series exploring the effects of technology on the body, mind, and spirit.

PART TWO:
The virtual world has become our lived reality. As a generation, we spend more time behind the screen than outdoors. What are the consequences of a lifestyle removed from nature? Join us for a film screening of the award-winning documentary “Play Again” followed by a discussion.

Film Synopsis:
One generation from now most people in the U.S. will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature. New media technologies have improved our lives in countless ways. Information now appears with a click. Overseas friends are part of our daily lives. And even grandma loves Wii. 

But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet? At a time when children play more behind screens than outside, PLAY AGAIN explores the changing balance between the virtual and natural worlds. Is our connection to nature disappearing down the digital rabbit hole?
