What Makes Me, Me? And Other Interesting Questions, Series 1 Episode 2 of 5
Duration: 5 minutes
Two communities living along the same river come into conflict when one decides to build a dam. This animated parable explores the concept of ownership of natural resources and whether they can be shared, and even stolen. It is part of a series of five fun and engaging short films that explore fundamental philosophical concepts through everyday questions that children ask, and adults often struggle to answer.
The films provide a springboard into wider philosophical exploration and debate in the classroom and beyond. Each film consists of a beautifully animated parable, intercut with a variety of different children's responses.
The series explore concepts such as morality, identity, perception and equality and aim to help Key Stage 2 students to think laterally and creatively.
