About the Film
About Play Marin

Consider the official definition of play: engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose. And yet hard science and deep wisdom tell us that play is neither silly nor impractical. Playing for Keeps examines the value of play through a health lens. The film features individuals who prioritize play as essential to a happier life. We witness how play is a particularly powerful antidote to those subjected to stress and danger on the job, while highlighting the power of a playful approach to our daily lives, regardless of our circumstance.

Everyone Wins with Play Marin

The lessons learned through the play and experiences we provide instill valuable skills, create friendships, and enhance well being and solidarity among the young people of Marin, improving their prospects for a successful future and benefiting the health of our broader Marin community.
