LIFE OF PI
FILM UNIT ONLY
(See the link below for my Life of Pi novel unit - this unit is only on the film - there are similar questions in both units - this unit has three very small excerpts from the film to be analyzed and many of the essay questions are different.)
INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:
➢ A test with 20 multiple-choice and ten true or false questions with answers. This is included in the unit itself and as a separate PDF file. These questions may all be answered from watching just the film.
➢ Some basic information on the Hero’s Journey.
➢ In the zip file are three separate units – the master unit, the test, and the essay questions.
➢ Ten essay/discussion questions.

Life of Pi is a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel published in 2001. The protagonist, Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel, a Tamil boy from Pondicherry, explores issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age. He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.
The novel, which has sold more than ten million copies worldwide, was rejected by at least five London publishing houses before being accepted by Knopf Canada, which published it in September 2001. The UK edition won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction the following year. It was also chosen for CBC Radio's Canada Reads 2003, where it was championed by author Nancy Lee. The French translation, L'histoire de Pi, was chosen in the French version of the contest, Le combat des livres, where it was championed by Louise Forestier. The novel won the 2003 Boeke Prize, a South African novel award. In 2004, it won the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature in Best Adult Fiction for years 2001–2003. In 2012 it was adapted into a theatrical feature film directed by Ang Lee with a screenplay by David Magee.
