ESL Conversation Film
Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie's post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film.
Conversation Starters: What was the focus of this film? What was their journey? What was in their way? How did they overcome their obstacle? What did you think about the end of the film? Why did the young man shoot the gun at the end? Would you have made that journey? Is there anyplace you would like to go? What sacrifices would you make to go on an adventure?
