Inside Out
Pete Docter

A heartwarming animated movie about the human experience, full of emotions and humour. 11 year-old Riley can’t believe her parents are making her move and leave her friends. The five emotions in the headquarters of her brain can’t believe it either. The small beings represent Riley’s main emotions and are responsible for sending her experiences and memories into long term memory every night. While Joy just wants Riley to be as happy and optimistic as her, Sadness usually sits in a corner crying and Fear, Anger and Disgust mostly spend their time argueing in a different corner. But, when a clumsy mistake leads to Riley’s memories being lost in the “Memory Dump”, they all come together to save Riley and end up learning to appreciate one another.

The film is suited for interdisciplinary teaching, in classes such as biology, psychology or philosophy.
