30 years ago it was a favorite family pastime to watch the filmstrips. You could carefully consider every shot, discuss, consider, and, if necessary, to return once more to the picture, you liked most of all. Today's life is rapidly hurtling somewhere... Almost no room for quiet, introspective view, conversation and discussion. Let's try to remember the good old tradition.
