Comments

Participation in the poll seemed impossible to me at first but things changed gradually so that, in the end, I really enjoyed having gone through the process. The task provided me with the opportunity to review my knowledge, experiences, beliefs, interests, and deficiencies in relation to film, and to redefine my position to it.
