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.
"A stunning piece of work... A great conversation starter."
"The intimacy of this film reaches people on a gut level, showing the power of children's play on its own terms."
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.
