The Obstacle Course
TBWA Paris and Inter-LGBT France have come together to create the very short but very effective film, “Le Parcours” (“The Course”). As the title suggests, it’s about an obstacle course, but this is a metaphorical one looking at the difficulties faced by many LGBT people around the world.
Ben Briand of Moonwalk Films directed the short that is entirely in the first person and mixes the real and the imaginary to show the struggles with school, friends, family and identity that many young LGBT people have to deal with. The idea is to show, the “energy, patience and courage it takes to get up every morning and keep moving despite prejudice and violence” for many LGBT people.
