The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, is one of the most important centres for animation in Europe. This short film explores similar themes to Enough in its depiction of a chicken office worker who becomes driven mad with irritation by his elephant co-worker. In essence, the film is a guide to how not to resolve conflict in the office, and provides a humorous way for young people aged 12-15 years old to debate the roles of conflict and coexistence in contemporary life. Viewers will be able to consider how the situation could have been resolved, drawing upon their own experiences of coexistence to do so. The drama between the chicken and the elephant presents two different perspectives, and the discussion of the film can be led from these two alternating vantage points. The key themes applicable to this film are: cooperation and empathy. The friction between the two characters can be extended into a greater understanding of coexistence, boundaries, and respectful communication
