I love this film, for me it’s really sad but at the same inspiring. This kiwi bird is determined to make his dream come true. His tear in one of the last scenes of the film shows that he managed to do it.
A few days ago I showed this film to my students and asked them to write down all the adjectives connected with personality they thought could somehow describe the bird. They came up with: ambitious, determined, stubborn, creative, brave, generous.
Another idea for including this short clip during the lesson might be as follows:
Was it difficult for him to do it? Why?
Was it worth it?
What dreams do you have? – students write what dreams they have on post-it-notes and put them on the board to create a Board of Dreams. T reads the dreams.
