Elbow Room

The fourth film in the National Film Board of Canada's ShowPeace collection on conflict resolution, ELBOW ROOM is a witty look at the different ways in which we deal with conflict, and their consequences.

In this animated short, we watch as a simple dispute between a pair of office workers is played out four different ways, each of them reflecting a common real-life approach to conflict: retreat, denial, aggression and negotiation.
