This Terrifying Obstacle Course Is a Metaphor for the LGBT Experience
Films Debuts Ahead of French Pride Festivals in June
Mar 25, 2016
As the current social climate is still rife with struggle for the LGBT community, TBWA Paris and Inter-LGBT France have created this stunning -- and at times, terrifying -- film that illustrates the ongoing struggle of the LGBT community, as seen through the metaphor of a treacherous obstacle course.
Told in the first-person POV, it begins in the classroom as the protagonist must dodge spitballs thrown by his classmates. Fleeing, he runs into a world full of many more challenges, occuring everywhere from the dorm room to a high school party, to a job search and perhaps the most terrifying hurdle of all, dinner with his parents.
Directed by Ben Briand of Moonwalk Films, the ad debuts ahead of the Pride Marches in France beginning in June.
