I’m a student -partially an assistant editor- and I love cinema. I always wanted to do this exercise (to summarize a film) to myself, so I had to make the most of this opportunity (such an awsome idea!). Nonetheless, this was just an encouragement and more edits will come! I’ve chosen this film for several reasons: the structure, the footage, the message and the language (I love languages and I needed to brush up my French).
