#16197/1416  THE LAND: An Adventure Play Documentary
At THE LAND adventure playground slides and swings are replaced with old tires, hammer and nails. Here, children are enabled to create worlds of their very own. THE LAND is a documentary film about the nature of play, risk and hazard set in an "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. In half an hour this film will change everything you think you believe. By you, I mean kids, parents, teachers, city managers, humans. It doesn't have any overt agenda or philosophizing about overprotective parenting, or a coddled generation. Nonetheless in scene after natural scene the truth becomes obvious: With a little bit of creativity, empathy and guidance, children can be freed to experience a much more fun, adventurous and fulfilling childhood. Hanna Rosin, The Atlantic
