Imparfaite, l’animation d’Andrea Dorfman, illustre avec élégance le rapport du personnel à l’universel. Portant moins sur la compatibilité entre une fille et un garçon, que sur la capacité de cette fille de s’accepter avec ses imperfections, Imparfaite célèbre à la fois la naissance de l’amour et celle du film lui-même.

Using strategies like Value Lines and Thinking Hats, students can explore society’s messages about physical flaws. Ask students to analyze the influence of media and role models, and develop a multimedia slide show that explores inspirational heroes and heroines. After exploring the NFB website Embracing My Flaws, students can create a similar stop-motion animated film, record personal stories using GarageBand, or write poetry exploring their “deepest, darkest secrets.”
