Last fall I gave a presentation to a local club about Life of Pi, the book on which I based my MA thesis. For my presentation, I created an Animoto video using the images from my personal copy of the illustrated novel.
Notice that Pi's face isn't visible in any of the images. This is because Martel wanted to place the reader in the boat with Pi. At its heart, Life of Pi is about faith, including the belief that a little empathy can save us all, and through stories we develop empathy and construct a better world.
Congratulations to all who worked on this beautiful movie. And to Yann Martel, I still love Pi and the idea that stories and art can save us.
