The camera focuses on a lone child, one who’s using a hand saw to hack through wet cardboard. It’s oddly unsettling. But that’s how things go at The Land, a Welsh playground where (supervised) kids get to play with hammers, nails and even fire. Adventure playgrounds have been around in the UK since the seventies, giving children a chance to direct their own play and take some chances in a more stimulating environment than the playgrounds Americans are used to. Erin Davis’ 24-minute anthropological documentary observes kids at The Land and shows the creative lengths they’ll go to in search of fun.
