Why We Play is a new documentary by North West filmmaker Mike Todd. It addresses the central question which gives the film its name: what do we mean by play? What meaning does it have in our lives? The film will explore how sport and culture connect with the concept of play and how this connects with the region’s engagement with London 2012.

In addition, taking inspiration from the short film ‘The Apology Line’ and the original Allan Bridge Apology Project, a central device of the documentary is the WE PLAY hotline. People of all ages, including but not limited to participants of the Cultural Olympiad, can leave a message with their personal reflections on what play means to them. The number for the free hotline is 0800 066 3620.

Why We Play is part of the WE PLAY Expo - a whole weekend of unmissable free events celebrating our region’s unique contribution to London 2012. Everyone’s invited to join the party in Preston 7 – 9 September 2012.
