Title: Elbow Room/Distances
Director: Obomsawin, Diane
Year: 2002
Length: 08 min 19 s

An office worker arrives bright and early, ready for another day on the job. But wait, there's a new co-worker sitting in a chair uncomfortably close. Pretty soon, elbows are bumping, ink is spilling, and tempers are flaring. Elbow Room demonstrates four common approaches to interpersonal tensions: retreat, aggression, denial and - finally - negotiation.

This film is part of the ShowPeace series of lively animated films about conflict resolution. This series has received support from UNICEF and Justice Canada. For teaching guides, a parents' guide and recommended resources visit www.nfb.ca/showpeace
